Original article HERE

The South Bend community had an opportunity to grab some free coffee, treats and a conversation with police officers Tuesday.

Cup with a Cop gave residents a chance to speak with South Bend police officers and express their concerns, or just have a chat over coffee with them.

U93 was there as well, offering a chance to win prizes by spinning a prize wheel. They also expressed the importance of this event to the community.

“Get to know your local police officers, the men and women patrolling your streets,” U93’s Bayless said. “It would be nice to see them drive by your house and know them by their first name. Police officers are not the bad guy, they’re our friends and they are men and women who you can reach out to if you are in trouble.”
