The Norman Police Department will host its next Coffee with a Cop event on Monday, May 8. The event provides a unique opportunity for citizens and police officers to come together to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee in an informal, neutral space.

The event is scheduled from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at Denver Corner, 10808 Alameda Drive. All community members are invited to attend.  

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 allows community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Norman’s neighborhoods, breaking down barriers and providing an opportunity for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
