National Coffee with a Cop Day
The Lafayette Police Department invites the community to participate in the national Coffee with a Cop program on Wednesday, October 4th. The event will take place at Christos restaurant at 3291 Teal Road West from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
Coffee with A Cop was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011, where officers were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day. In less than five years, Coffee with a Cop events have been hosted in all 50 states and it has become one of the most successful community oriented policing programs across the country. The program has also expanded outside the United States to Canada, Europe, Australia, and Africa. The key to Coffee with a Cop’s growing success is that it opens the door for interactions outside of the crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together.
Several Lafayette police officers will be on hand to have conversations with no agendas and no barriers. We look forward to these conversations to better connect to the community and to better solve problems.
