Coffee with a Cop @ Grill II
July 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join the Bridgeport DSSD and the Bridgeport Police Department for Coffee with a Cop! Come meet with local officers, discuss community issues, build relationships, and enjoy a tasty cup of coffee. All community members are invited to attend.
Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for business owners and residents to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Downtown Bridgeport. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.
The event aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time. Please contact the Bridgeport DSSD with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, (203) 908-3622. We hope to see you there!
