The idea behind “Coffee With A Cop” is to afford the public an opportunity to meet and speak with their local law enforcement professionals in an open and friendly atmosphere.

“Coffee With A Cop” is being successfully conducted by over 175 different police agencies in 36 different states. The public is afforded an opportunity to have questions answered or to just say hello and meet the people that wear the uniform -- all over a delicious cup of coffee.
