Coffee with a Cop in Downtown Bridgeport!
April 29 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
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.
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.
