Coffee with a Cop is for Police Officers

A cup of coffee is a common bond. And, it can help officers build better relationships with the communities they serve.


Organizational Transformation

Coffee with a Cop removes the typical barriers that come between officers and residents. And it’s as beneficial for residents as it is for officers. Line level officers begin to see clearly the benefit of police-community collaboration and remember why they decided to put on the badge. The shift in attitudes helps transform an agency into a community-oriented policing organization.
