UConn Police to host Coffee with a Cop on November 8th
Program offers opportunity to meet local officers, discuss community issues
On November 8th police officers from UConn and community members will come together in an informal, space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.
All community members are invited to attend. The event begins at 11:30 am on November 8th at UConn Storrs’ Student Union room 106A. Please contact Ofc Rachael Levy with questions: Rachael.Levy@uconn.edu.
Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for Faculty, Staff and Students to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work within UConn’s campus.
The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.
The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you all on the 8th.
