Twin Cities law officers and citizens have found a way to connect at a place that’s low-pressure, but high energy.

Starbucks, off of Forsyth Park, hosted ‘Coffee With A Cop’ Wednesday afternoon to give police and customers a chance to get to know one another.

Organizers said they see it as a way to thank the officers for what they do.

“This will allow them to come here and again have coffee and food and they can ask any questions, or just say thank you for the job they have done,” said Corey Pleasant, the manager at this Starbucks.
The officers and deputies received special gifts too, to show Starbucks’ and the community’s support of law enforcement.
