Coffee with a Cop is a simple concept; Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink a cup of coffee. In over 175 cities and towns in 36 states, Coffee with a Cop has improved community trust, police legitimacy and partnership building.
One of the keys to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that it removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between police officers and community members. Instead, Coffee with a Cop allows for a relaxed, informal one-on-one interaction in a friendly atmosphere.
The Southeast Precinct is hosting Coffee with a Cop on Monday, July 7, 2014, from 8 to 9 a.m. at Louie M’s, 1718 Vinton Street.
Stop in for breakfast or a cup of coffee, and meet the officers that work in the area.
