Friday’s Coffee With a Cop Marks 3 Years Going Strong


Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police will be having Coffee With a Cop on Friday, June 17, 2016 at Chick-fil-A, located in Providence MarketPlace. This Coffee With a Cop marks the 3-year anniversary of the program.

“Coffee With a Cop has been extremely successful, and I have met many members of our community through this program,” said Chief James Hambrick. “It is a great opportunity for me to connect with our community in a relaxed setting.”

Mt. Juliet Police started Coffee With a Cop at Chick-fil-a in June of 2013.

“After every Coffee With a Cop, I always do a poll with staff to see how many new, different citizens we all met,” said Lt. Tyler Chandler. “It is awesome to know, that after 3 years going strong, we continue to meet new people and make new connections.”

The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Police Chief James Hambrick, his leadership team, and officers will have coffee in hand and ready to enjoy simple conversation anytime between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 17. Coffee 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 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 provided Chick-fil-A.
