Cops, Coffee, Community, And Conversation Continues to be a Success in Mt. Juliet


Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police leadership continue to laud the Coffee With a Cop program that has been going strong for two years. To celebrate the 2-year anniversary of the program, the department has planned an ‘Evening Edition’ of Coffee With a Cop on Thursday, June 18, 2015. Traditionally, the event is held on a Friday morning, but many citizens have requested to have a Coffee With a Cop in the evening. After hearing the many requests, the department is going to try it out.

The ‘Evening Edition’ of Coffee With a Cop will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Lasaters Coffee, located at 1400 N. Mt. Juliet Road. The public is encouraged to stop by, and enjoy free coffee with cops, provided by Lasaters Coffee.

“This program has gone beyond my expectations, it’s great. At every Coffee With a Cop the community comes out to show their support for us, ask questions, and children even show up dressed as police officers,” Police Chief James Hambrick said. “We also continue to meet and see new faces at each event, which is extremely important to me. I want our community to know who protects them, and this event gives them the opportunity to meet their protectors face-to-face in a relaxed environment.”

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 top Department leadership, in an informal setting to ask questions or address concerns.
