Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Coffee & Donuts With a Cop is Friday, December 19, 2014 morning at Gourmet Donuts (3993 N Mt Juliet Rd), and the public is invited and encouraged to attend. Department leadership and officers will be on-scene with donut in-hand and ready to enjoy simple conversation anytime between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Coffee & Donuts with a Cop is an opportunity for the public to meet with officers in a relaxed environment and talk about anything — from crime issues to neighborhood programs, public safety management to how to join the force. The public brings the questions, chat with an officer, and they get a free cup of coffee and donuts.
“The simplicity is appealing: We show up, community members show up, and then we talk over coffee. It is a great way to build relationships with people in the community and hear about the concerns residents may have,” said Chief James Hambrick.
The Coffee With A Cop program is a non-traditional way to generate conversation between the police department and community it serves. This event allows the public to interact with police officers, including the Chief of Police, in an informal setting to ask questions or address concerns with local law enforcement. Everyone is encouraged to stop by the Coffee With A Cop event to say hello and enjoy free coffee and donuts provided by Gourmet Donuts.
