Moreno Valley Coffee with a Cop
The Moreno Valley Police Department will host Coffee with a Copon Thursday, June 28, 2018. The program offers opportunity to meet local officers and discuss community issues.
Moreno Valley, CA – On Thursday, June 28, 2018, officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee. Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Department’s work in Moreno Valley neighborhoods.
The majority of contacts law enforcement officers have with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.
The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
All community members are invited to attend. The event will begin on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 8:00 AM at The Cupcake and Espresso Bar located at 14475 Moreno Beach Dr. Suite #102, Moreno Valley, CA 92555. Please contact the Community Services Unit with questions: 951-486-6700.
