A cup of coffee is a common bond and an activity usually shared by friends. It is also a way for strangers to come together and get to know each other. In this light the Ypsilanti Police Department is trying to build better relationships with the community that we serve. So what is Coffee with a Cop?
1-It is agenda free. There will be no Power Point presentations, no speeches or specific topics to discuss. Just informal conversation about what matters to the community or anything else that you would like to talk about.
2-There are no barriers. There are no radios or patrol vehicles or calls for service to attend to. It is just a time for the Police Department to be more approachable and have a relaxed conversation with our citizens.
3-Time for problem solving. These events are great opportunities to work on solutions to ongoing issues in neighborhoods. By coming together under less stressful circumstances, peaceful and wise solutions can be realized and only strengthens the relationships between the Police and the community.
Coffee with a Cop is a travelling event and moves from place to place in the City in order to try and reach as many people as possible. Please check the City Calendar for the date, time and location of the next event.
