National Coffee with a Cop Day
The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) has partnered with the Hawthorne Police Department to conduct the first national Coffee with a Cop day to be held on October 7, 2016.
As many of you know, Coffee with a Cop is an innovative program started by the Hawthorne (California) Police Department (HPD) in 2011 in response to tensions between the police and the community. The HPD wanted to help break down barriers, so they came up with a simple plan: Officers invited their residents to join them for a cup of coffee and a conversation. They called it Coffee with a Cop, and it has been spreading like wildfire ever since the first cup was poured. Today more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve have participated in this program.
Coffee with a Cop was highlighted in the Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing as a way to build community trust and confidence.
In the past we have held these events on our own date/time. On Oct 7, 2016 (as part of the National Coffee with a Cop Day) we are holding our Coffee with a Cop at Common Grounds Coffee House on 219 N. Salem Street from 8am-10am.
Please stop by and grab a cup of Coffee and stay for some conversation.
