Coffee with a Cop started out as a part of a national campaign. Originally it was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011 when Officers from the Hawthorne Police Department were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day. Now events are held across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Latin America. 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.
Coffee with a Cop is on a mission to improve trust and build relationships – one cup of coffee at a time.
