Meet Your Police Officers Oct. 4 for National Coffee With a Cop Day

National Coffee with a Cop Day serves to encourage positive communication between law enforcement personnel and the public. The Department of Justice designated the first Wednesday in October as National Coffee with a Cop day in 2016 as part of their National Community Policing Week. The practice of local police officers meeting with residents over a cup of coffee was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011 by the local police department.

This short video explains the concept behind Coffee with a Cop:

Numerous law enforcement agencies in Montgomery County want to meet the residents they serve over a cup of coffee Wednesday. So take some time, grab a cup of coffee and chat with your neighbor who also happens to be a cop.
