PALMDALE – “Coffee with a Cop” returns this Friday, Oct. 2, in Palmdale.
Officers from Palmdale Sheriff’s Station and local residents will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee.
The event will take place from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2, at Legacy Commons, located at 930 East Avenue Q-9 in Palmdale. View a flyer for this event here.
All community members are invited to attend, and the coffee is free!
Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for residents to ask questions and learn more about the sheriff department’s work in Palmdale’s neighborhoods.
The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. These situations are not the most effective times for relationship building, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street.
Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for relaxed, one-on-one interactions.
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members, one cup of coffee at a time.
