A partnership between the police department, the employees’ association, local coffee shops and non-profit organizations, Coffee with a Cop is modeled after the national “Coffee with a Cop” program. The intent is to allow citizens to interact with local law enforcement in a relaxed casual environment. Partnering with coffee shops in geographically different areas allows the event to move throughout the community. Times change allow for different portions of the population to attend. Partnering with local non-profits allows for increased attendance rates, as sharing the event within those communities allows for more connections to the event. For example, Coffee with a Cop has previously partnered with Dollars for Dogs, Making Strides against breast cancer, and Special Olympics.
