Buffalo – Mayor Byron W. Brown and Buffalo Police kicked off ‘Coffee with a Cop’ day in the City of Buffalo today at the Tim Horton’s at Delaware and Linden. Coffee with a Cop is a national law enforcement program that brings police officers and the community members they serve together—over coffee—to discuss community topics, learn more about each other and build relationships in an informal, positive environment.
“I want our Buffalo Police officers and residents to continue to respect one another and foster positive relationships,” said Mayor Brown. “Taking part in ‘Coffee with a Cop’ day is part of our ongoing efforts to engage community members and police as we work together to build an even stronger Buffalo for all.”
‘Coffee with a Cop’ provides city residents the opportunity to sit down with officers, ask questions and share what’s on their mind. Community members and police officers get to know each other and discover mutual goals for their community.
“Our goal is to enhance police-community relations throughout the City, and this effort is a proactive program to engage the community in a positive way in Buffalo,” said Deputy Police Commissioner Kim Beaty, organizer of the local event.
