LONDON KY—On Wednesday, October 3rd from 7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. the London Police Department will host their fourth annual “Coffee with a Cop” event at the London Community Center with Sacred Grounds Coffee. The event is free and open to the public.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for the public to engage police with questions and learn more about the Department’s work in London’s neighborhoods and schools.

“We’d like for our community to feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers. These exchanges are the foundation of community partnerships,” said London Police Chief Derek House.

The event is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the U.S. on the same date, as police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

Coffee with a Cop is one of over 200 community policing programs the London Police Department spearheads annually. All who attend will receive a free cup of coffee

London Police are encouraging the public to post on social media when they attend the using the hashtags #coffeewithacopday2018 or #coffeewithacop. The National program, Coffee with a Cop, will be reposting photos that use those hashtags throughout the day.
