From the Apopka Police Department Public Information Office
Coffee with a Cop is coming to Apopka next Wednesday, October 2nd from 8-10am at the Main Street McDonald’s.
National Coffee with a Cop day is a day dedicated to encouraging communication and positive interactions between law enforcement agencies and the public.
The day began as part of National Community Policing Week in 2016 and now continues each year on the first Wednesday in October furthering efforts nationwide to bridge the gap between the community and the law.
“Coffee with a Cop is community policing at its core. The simple act of having a cup of coffee with community members can be the first step in increasing trust and cooperation between the police and the people they serve,” said former COPS Office Director Ronald L. Davis.
In Apopka, officers from the APD will be at the McDonald’s on Main Street/441. No agenda, just an opportunity for local officers and residents to sit down with a coffee, ask questions, share what’s on their mind, and learn about making a difference in the Apopka community. Attendees will enjoy a FREE McCafe small coffee, courtesy of McDonald’s.
