Have coffee with a cop this Saturday

Officers from Hopewell Township Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space this Saturday to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend.

12pm-2pm, October 19, 2019 at Starbucks located at 800 Denow Road, Pennington

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Hopewell Township and Hopewell Borough.

The majority of contacts law enforcement have 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. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the County, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

Please contact P/O Vinnie Amabile with questions: (609) 737-3100 ext 5660 or vamabile@hopewelltwp.org.
