EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Officers from the East Brunswick Police Department and community members will come together in an informal atmosphere to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend. The event begins at 9:00 am on April 27th at the Colonial Diner, 560 Route 18 North. The Colonial Diner is  opening its doors to help the EBPD by hosting the event and providing free coffee.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in East Brunswick’s neighborhood.  The event is part of the EBPD's community outreach program.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has 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 country as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

Please contact Patrolman Craig Hoover with questions at choover@ebpd.net or office phone 732-390-6938.
