HISD Police Department to host ‘Coffee with a Cop’

 (Houston Independent School District)The HISD Police Department will be hosting “Coffee with a Cop” for the community on Tuesday, April 25, from 8 to 9 a.m. at the McDonald’s located on 2515 Fulton St.

During the event, residents will have the opportunity to meet with officers and ask them questions

Created in 2011, Coffee with a Cop was initiated via partnership between the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, and other law enforcement agencies in response to tensions between the police and community.

Law enforcement wanted to assist in breaking down those barriers so officers invited their residents to join them for a cup of coffee and conversation. The program hopes to generate a positive perception to law enforcement. Today more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve have participated in this program.
