The Twin Falls Police Department hosted Coffee with a Cop Saturday morning at Twin Beans in downtown Twin Falls.

The department and the coffee shop pitched in to provide free coffee to those visiting with law enforcement.

Chief Craig Kingsbury said events like this give the department a chance to talk with community members and really get a feel for what they want from their local law enforcement.

“We often use this phrase, ‘one team, one mission, one city,’ and here, this is just a part of that and it just kind of emulates that,” he said.

The chief said he hopes getting to know the officers can help the community feel better about going to them when there’s trouble.

The department tries to host a Coffee with a Cop event every couple of months so if you missed this one keep an eye on their Facebook page for the next one.
