WRPD to Host Coffee with a Cop

August 29, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Warner Robins Police Dept. to host Coffee with a Cop on September 29th
Program offers opportunity to meet local officers, discuss community issues.

WARNER ROBINS- On September 29th, officers from the Warner Robins Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee.
All community members are invited to attend. The event begins at 8 AM on September 29, 2014 at Starbucks, 2729 Watson Boulevard. Please contact Public Information Officer, Jennifer Parson with questions: (478) 302-5417 or jparson@wrga.gov.
Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in neighborhoods throughout the city of Warner Robins.
The majority of the time residents meet law enforcement officials during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times to build relationships within the community, and some Warner Robins residents may feel officers are unapproachable. Coffee with a Cop breaks down those barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
“We hope having this event will help us get to know our community members, and let them get to know us,” said Warner Robins Police Chief Brett Evans. “We plan to have more opportunities like this in the future.”
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Departments across the country are holding events like this in an effort to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

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

They're encouraging all high school students in the state to enter a drug abuse prevention contest.
Students interested should submit a 30 second video encouraging their peers to reject prescription drug abuse. The video should be original, created by students, and should promote awareness and prevention.
