Coffee with a Cop

MPD will be holding our next Coffee with a Cop event on Saturday, 25 May 2019 at 9 AM at the Capital City Farmers’ Market Montpelier Vermont.

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 over 175 cities and towns in 36 states, “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.

Free coffee will be provided. All are welcome! We’ll see you there!
