Coffee With a Cop
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 is National Coffee with a Cop day and the Manheim Township Police will be a participating agency. The Starbucks Store at 1950 Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township has agreed to host the event for us and provide free coffee and light snacks for participants.
From 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., several officers from our police department will be on hand to have informal conversations with residents about what matters the most to them. Having a positive interaction with police officers in a non-crisis situation is key to sustaining and improving community relations, which is a core value for our police department.
The Coffee with a Cop program is a West-coast-based community-policing effort that has gained much support in its five-year existence. For more information about the program, please see http://coffeewithacop.com/about/
