Coffee with a Cop
MPD will be holding our next Coffee with a Cop event on Saturday, 17 March 2018 from 2 – 4 PM at Down Home Kitchen located at 100 Main Street in Montpelier.
What is “Coffee with a Cop” you ask?
It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.
In thousands of cities and towns in all 50 states, and now many other countries, “Coffee with a Cop” has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy, and partnership building.
Community members come to a local “Coffee with a Cop” for a variety of reasons, but no matter why, they are likely to leave with a more positive impression of their local police department. 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 law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving.
All are welcome! We’ll see you there!
