National Coffee with a Cop day is a day dedicated to encourage communication and positive interactions between law enforcement agencies and the public.
The day began as part of National 社区 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.
“和网赌娱乐正规真人喝咖啡是社区治安的核心. 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,前网赌娱乐正规真人办公室主任Ronald L. 戴维斯.
我们的下一个活动定在10月3日，星期三. 7, 2020.
I think we can all agree that the last six months have been some of the most challenging times we have faced in our careers. I can only imagine some of the violence and protests your agencies have had (and continue) to respond to. I hope you are all doing as well as can be during these difficult times.
尽管充满了混乱和暴力, it is inspiring and humbling to see officers and staff doing their best serving our respective communities. 我们也注意到(不像过去), how many people have gone out of their way to thank the officers. This gives us the energy and boost to “keep on keepin’ on”. I believe this is the result of all of our community policing efforts we have invested in.
发生了这么多事, we have decided to cancel/postpone the 5th Annual National Coffee with a Cop day scheduled for 星期三,10月ober 7th, 2020
However, all parts of the country (and world for that matter) are in different stages of re-opening. It is up to each agency to decide whether to hold an event, hold one virtually, or postpone. We just won’t be promoting the National day as a whole.
I hope we can get out there as soon as possible and hold CwC 事件 in person again. 就像你们在公司里所经历的那样, these 事件 are sometimes more important for our officers than the community. It is important that our line-level patrol officers have an opportunity to meet regular folks and have a normal conversation. CwC是允许我们这样做的事件.
We believe CwC 事件 will be the event that kickstarts our community policing 事件 once the pandemic is over. 我期待着那一天的到来.
Thank you again for stepping up during these uncertain times. Please reach out if you have any questions or comments. firstname.lastname@example.org

National Coffee with a Cop Day grew out of the casual coffee conversations held in 2011 by the Hawthorne (California) Police Department, which quickly spread throughout the country and then the world. The simple idea for building better relationships with community members caught fire, with other police and 治安官’s departments jumping into the initiative without the need of formal directives.
Firm belief in the value of the initiative by the Hawthorne Police Department and later support and encouragement from the Department of Justice has allowed the grassroots initiative to gain enough momentum to be in all 50 州 and nine 国家, 不打算在那里停留. 与目标开放, honest communication without the influence of agendas or speeches, 世界各地的公民都能从中受益.
We encourage and welcome all law enforcement departments to set up a National Coffee with a Cop day event each year. 在你所在的地区举办一个活动, 邀请公众加入你的队伍, 并帮助建立信任和关系.
Are you a coffee shop, business, or organization that wants to participate? 有什么正规的网赌软件网赌娱乐正规真人, 治安官, 公共安全, or other law enforcement department in your area and offer to partner.

“We have been involved with Coffee with a Cop since 2013, and it has been a great tool for our department to connect with the community. 我们有一家当地电台与我们合作, and they do a live remote with us every Coffee with a Cop. This has allowed us to reach tens of thousands of people every month, and our community really appreciates the accessibility that Coffee with a Cop gives them to both our department and officers. 第一次全国网赌娱乐正规真人日咖啡节, we held six separate Coffee with a Cop’s across our city simultaneously.”
“National Coffee with a Cop Day is a great opportunity for police to get out and meet with community members and just get to know each other in a human level.”
