Coffee With A Cop

Have a cup of joe and visit with officers of the Lakeway Police Department at Coffee with a Cop from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Friday, April 6, at Whataburger, 2011 RM 620 S., in Lakeway. The national Coffee with A Cop was launched in Hawthorne, Calif., in 2011. In less than five years, Coffee with a Cop expanded to all 50 states. The event is one of the most successful community oriented policing programs across the country. The program also has grown outside the U.S. to Canada, Europe, Australia, and Africa. The key to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that it opens the door for interactions outside of the crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together. “We invite everyone to join us for Coffee with a Cop to ask questions, share concerns, or just to say hello,” Lakeway Police Chief Todd Radford said.
