From the comfort of your own home you can talk story with community policing officers in an informal setting. Topics of conversation can range from answering questions to discussing neighborhood or community issues.

National Coffee With a Cop Day began as part of National Community Policing Week in 2016 and now continues each year on the first Wednesday in October furthering efforts nationwide to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement.
