Coffee With A Cop
No agendas. No speeches. Just an opportunity to meet your police officers, ask questions and discuss concerns, in a friendly environment, over a cup of coffee!
A few years ago, members of the Hawthorne Police Department were trying to find a way they could connect with their community and build relationships with residents and business owners. They eventually developed the Coffee With A Cop program. After a successful beginning, the Hawthorne PD went on the road and began promoting the program, and helping other departments in starting their own programs in their respective cities. Today, there have been over 140 cities in over 30 states who have held their own Coffee With A Cop.
Coffee With A Cop In Azusa
The Azusa Police Department has always enjoyed a great relationship with our community. For residents, business owners or students from Azusa Pacific University, our commitment to providing a safe and secure community where people can live, work and play is paramount to our mission.
Through Coffee With A Cop, we want to forge even stronger relationships with those we have sworn to protect and serve. Many people never have the opportunity to speak to a police officer outside of an official or enforcement type setting. When police officers and the community come together to speak about issues and concerns, both sides benefit. With the end goal of building a great community, the Azusa Police Department is excited to enter into this modern community policing program.
It is anticipated that the Coffee With A Cop program will move from one local business to the next, at varying times. We want to make the program accessible to all, throughout the city. We realize some people can not attend during certain times, which is why we will hold some of these events in the evening.
