Coffee with a Cop brings police officers and the community members they serve together–over coffee–to discuss issues and learn more about each other.
Coffee with a Cop events create a relaxed, neutral atmosphere with no speeches, no agenda, and no preset subjects. They allow residents to sit down with the local officers that patrol their community and give the community members the ability to discuss the concerns that are most important to them. The conversations are intimate and personal, important to both the residents and the officers speaking with them.
Coffee with a Cop provides “faces” for officers and community members to connect with to encourage them to get to know each other and form a working trust based on their mutual goal—a better, safer community. Coffee with a Cop provides distraction-free time with an officer—no pending radio calls or cellphones ringing—just good communication.
