“Coffee with a Cop,” a unique and successful national program supported by the United States Department of Justice, is returning to Alhambra.
Alhambra Police Department officers invite Alhambra residents to have a cup of coffee — and talk — from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the IHOP Restaurant, 701 S. Fremont Ave., Alhambra.
Most contacts between police officers and community members occur during times of stress: community emergencies and in highly emotional situations. This Coffee with a Cop event will offer a time of leisure and informal interaction between Alhambra police officers and community members, creating an atmosphere of comfort for sharing information about the community.
Coffee with a Cop is an extension of the concept of Community Oriented Policing, a collaboration between the police and the community that identifies and solves community problems, with community members taking an active role in the process of problem solving.
Community participants are free to ask questions, bring up concerns, or simply to become better acquainted with the men and women in blue who serve the community. Please join Alhambra police officers for this event, whether for just a few minutes or for the entirety, as they look forward to building relationships with the community they protect and serve.
