Coffee With A Cop
Engaging our community in public safety efforts is a top priority of the South Portland Police Department. Police officers and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. One of the keys to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that is removes the physical barriers that routinely exist between police officers and community members, allowing for the relaxed, one-on-one interactions which are the necessary foundation of partnerships. Informal contact in a friendly atmosphere increases trust between police officers and the members of our community which is critical to public safety and problem solving.
Please consider joining us at our next event. Look for the time and location of our next event later this summer. For more information contact Lt Frank Clark or call 207-799-5511 ext 7242
