Montclair Police Officers Mingle with Residents Over a Cup of Joe


MONTCLAIR, NJ - Several residents gathered with Montclair Police Officers over a cup of coffee on Friday morning at Trend Coffee and Tea House.  

The initiative, entitled Coffee with a Cop, is a nationwide initiative with over 175 participating police departments, including Montclair. Residents come out to meet their local law enforcement officers and to foster positive relationships. The effort also promotes positive relationships with local businesses that host the event.

While some residents came with the intent of greeting officers, others were pleasantly surprised and shook hands with officers as they strolled past.
