The Sioux Falls Police Department held its last ‘Coffee with a Cop’ event of the year Saturday at the Caribou Coffee inside the Empire Mall.

The event gives people the chance to discuss their concerns or have a friendly conversation.
Officers at the event say they love to meet with people in the community on a more personal level.

“Most times when people see police officers come up they’re having an emergency or a bad day. When we’re doing these events its more, get out to know people and let them know that we are approachable and just people behind these uniforms,” Sioux Falls Police Officer Brady Lieuwen said.

This is the third year of ‘Coffee with a Cop’ in Sioux Falls and officers say they hope to continue the event in the future.
