“This is an opportunity to meet the community one-on-one in a neutral setting instead of during a crisis which typically brings law enforcement officers and community members together,” McKinley said.
Coffee with A Cop was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011. Members of the Hawthorne Police Department were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day. These brainstorming sessions led to the idea of having coffee with members of the community they serve.
The event is was designed to provide residents with the opportunity to ask questions and establish positive relationships with law enforcement, without any speeches or agendas.
