MPD to Host 2nd "Coffee with a Cop" Nov 21 PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, November 18, 2014ALT

The Montclair Police Department Community Service Unit (CSU) will host the second “Coffee with a Cop” event on Friday, November 21, 8:00-10:00 a.m., at Anderson's 1949, 39 Glenridge Avenue. The idea behind “Coffee With A Cop” is to afford the public an opportunity to meet and speak with local law enforcement professionals in an open and friendly atmosphere.

Montclair’s CSU strives to form partnerships with all of Montclair -- residents as well as businesses. All too often, the community only interacts with the police in times of crisis. “Coffee with a Cop” is an effort to foster positive relationships with the police.

The program has already proved successful in over 175 police agencies in 36 states. The public may ask questions of the officers or just pop in to meet the person in uniform and say hello over a nice hot cup of coffee.
