The 4th annual National Coffee with a Cop day event will be held on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019. Join APD for coffee and conversation at Coffee With A Cop. The event will be held at the Kickstand Café, located in Arlington Center.
Coffee with a Cop is an initiative implemented throughout cities and towns nationwide, that is designed to provide a welcoming environment for residents to get to know their police officers face-to-face and talk about what’s going on in their community.
The Arlington Police Department is dedicated to the concepts of community policing, building public trust and police legitimacy.
Coffee will be provided free of charge.
About Coffee with a Cop:
Coffee with a Cop began in Hawthorne, Calif. in 2011 as a result of police officers brainstorming ways to better interact with their community. They developed a simple plan to break down the barriers that have been built between police officers and citizens — have a cup of coffee, discuss what’s on your mind, ask questions and make suggestions that could better the community.
Since its creation, Coffee with a Cop events have been held in more than 2,000 communities in 49 states. It is regarded as one of the most successful community oriented policing programs in the United States.
