Building relationships. One cup at a time.
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.Get Involved
The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down the barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve.
Taking time to meet at neutral locations provides the opportunity for real conversations about issues that matter.
Coffee with a Cop events take place at local restaurants. Community residents can sit down with officers and ask questions or share what’s on their mind.
In a short time, citizens and police officers get to know each other and discover mutual goals for the communities they live in and serve.
