On Wednesday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., the Fort Bragg Police Department will partner with our local Starbucks to present a Coffee with a Cop event to coincide with National Coffee with a Cop Day, scheduled annually for the first Wednesday in October.
Coffee with a Cop Day was established in 2011 by the Hawthorne Police Department in California in an attempt to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day. The event is intended to allow the public to interact with law enforcement on a personal level in a relaxed environment with participants being encouraged to have honest conversations about their community.
For this event Starbucks will be providing coffee and snacks to those individuals participating in the discussion, with members of the Fort Bragg Police Department present to answer questions and address concerns. The Police Department hopes to have some of our newer Officers on-hand alongside some of our veteran Officers so the community can express their expectations for our local law enforcement.
Other coffee shops, diners or organizations interested in hosting similar events may contact Sergeant O’Neal at (707) 961-2800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
