Coffee with a Cop

coffee cop 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (1/11/14) — The Hopkinsville Police Department will be hosting its “Coffee with a Cop” program that will offer the community the chance to meet local officials and to discuss community issues. The event will begin at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29 at the Chik-fil-a located on 4250 Fort Campbell Blvd.

The program will provide community members a unique way to ask questions in an informal and neutral environment about current issues that going on in the city’s neighborhoods. The majority of the contacts law enforcement has with the public is during emergencies, or in times of emotional distress which, aren’t most effective times to build relationships with the community. Coffee with a Cop helps breakdown those barriers and allows a more relaxed one-on-one interaction.

“We hope community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Hopkinsville Police Chief Guy Howie. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. This program also aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
