Morgantown City Police Officers were at McDonald's on Wednesday to celebrate Coffee with a Cop. The program, which was hosted by the local McDonald's, to bring law enforcement and the community together in a relaxed space to discuss community issues and build relationships.
MPD Officers Nathan Barks, Jessie Burden, and Paul Evans had coffee with members of the community and answers questions and concerns.
Coffee with a Cop was started by the Hawthorne Police Department in California in 2011 and has grown into a national movement with events occurring in all 50 states. The program has also expanded to Europe, some African countries, Latin America and Australia, according to the Coffee with a Cop website.
Coffee with a Cop brings police officers and the community members they serve together — over coffee — to discuss issues and learn more about each other. For more information about the national event, visit the official Coffee with a Cop website www.coffeewithacop.com.
