Mark Your Calendar - Coffee With A Cop!

Yesterday the Costa Mesa Police Department issued the following press release.  This should be a fun event.  I'll remind you again as we get closer to that date.  Who knows.. you might even have a chance to chat with Officer Kha Bao, our most decorated DUI enforcer.

Come Have Coffee With a Cop!

On July 15, 2014, the Costa Mesa Police Department will host their first Coffee With a Cop event. This event brings police officers and community members together in an informal setting at a local business to discuss community issues and build relationships while enjoying a cup of coffee. All community members are invited to attend. The event will take place from 8:00AM – 10:00AM on July 15, 2014, at the McDonald's restaurant located at 3141 Harbor Blvd.

Coffee with a Cop provides an opportunity for community members to ask questions, learn more about the Costa Mesa Police Department and meet your officers. There will be no agenda or speeches, just an opportunity to voice your concerns and get to know the officers in your neighborhood.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has 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.

We hope everyone can join us at this kick-off event on July 15th!
