From the Apopka Police Department
Don’t forget to come out to Coffee With a Cop tomorrow from 8:30 am – 10 am. Come to discuss issues and learn about making a difference in our community with Chief Mike McKinley and other Apopka police officers over a FREE cup of coffee. Location is the Apopka McDonalds located at 233 East Main Street in Apopka.
“This is an opportunity to meet the community one-on-one in a neutral setting,” said Chief McKinley. “Instead of during a crisis which typically brings law enforcement officers and community members together.”
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.
