POLICE are generally busy going from job to job, but yesterday for the second time in three weeks, members of the Gladstone police sat themselves down for a “coffee with a cop” session.
A new dance program was introduced to the Oxnard School District last week. It’s known as Hip Hop with a Cop and it’s not only a hit around campus, but the moves are also going viral.
On the evening of Wednesday, January 24, the council held its first ‘Coffee With A Cop’ event at the Miles Coffee Bar on East Tremont Avenue. From girlscout troop leaders to businessmen and women, local volunteers, and everyday residents of the neighborhood, the coffee shop soon filled to max capacity with barely any room to walk around.
Police from Hervey Bay and the Crime Prevention Unit attended Zaraffas coffee shop on Thursday this week for the first of their Coffee with a Cop for 2018. Whilst the numbers were down from previous coffee with a cop events, this time two of the patrons were in fact New South Wales police officers.
El Zarape was noisy and packed on Wednesday morning. Every one of the Nogales restaurant’s tables was surrounded by diners laughing and chatting over the first meal of the day, including a row of tables in the center of the room filled with uniformed law enforcement personnel sitting side-by-side with civilians.
Coffee with a Cop was held at Our Daily Bread soup kitchen and the turnout was more than they anticipated. Residents took time to share their concerns about what is happening in their neighborhoods. Anything from traffic to the amount of officers out on patrol were on the list. Those attending say they were thankful officers cared enough to sit down with them and that as citizens they also have a responsibility to talk with the officers.
In an effort to encourage communication between agents and community, the Nogales Border Patrol Station and Nogales Police Department co-hosted a “Coffee with a Cop” event. Members of the community were invited to join cops and agents at El Zarape restaurant in Nogales.
Conversation and donuts – it was a winning combination Wednesday morning during the Gulfport police ‘Donut with a Cop’ event. The coffee was hot and the donuts fresh, all in an effort by the police department to get the conversation brewing.
If you walked into one Central Louisiana coffee shop on Wednesday morning, you might have mistakenly thought you came across a crime scene. No need for alarm, it was all part of a community meet-and-greet put on by the Alexandria Police Department.
This morning, Gulfport police officers had a chance to chat with locals and enjoy a cup of coffee and a doughnut. Dozens of people crowded into the Starbucks in Gulfport to get an opportunity to mingle with local law enforcement officers. The police department hosts these events as part of the effort to build relationships in the community and with the people they serve.
