A FREE Community Safety Event!

7:30 am – 9:30am @ Smithville City Hall

It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. In over 200 cities, towns, and campuses in 39 states, Coffee with a Cop has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy, information sharing and partnership building. One of the keys to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that it 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 in police officers as individuals, improving the overall image of police and contributing to increased officer safety
