Norman police to hold Coffee with a Cop on Thursday
NORMAN — The Norman Police Department will hold its next Coffee with a Cop from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday at Sam’s Club, 3400 W Main St.
All community members are invited to attend, and the event is kid-friendly.
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, a news release stated. Coffee with a Cop allows community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Norman’s neighborhoods, breaking down barriers and providing an opportunity for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
The monthly event is held on different days of the week and at different times of day each month to ensure residents have equal opportunity to come together with their local police officers to discuss community issues and build relationships in an informal, neutral space.
