Coffee with a Cop is an event held for police and community members to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee.
The goal of the program is to increase community trust, police legitimacy and partnership building. Coffee with a Cop removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead, it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere.
Starbucks will provide free drip coffee for the event.
