Please Join Ceres Police Department for Coffee with a Cop at Supermoms this Thursday at 7:30 AM

Ceres, CA – On Thursday, September 25th, Supermoms Frozen Yogurt & More in Ceres will be hosting a “Coffee with a Cop” event. Officers from the Ceres 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. This event will take place from 7:30-8:30 AM on Thursday, September 25th, at Supermoms Frozen Yogurt & More, located at 2531 E. Whitmore Avenue, #R in Ceres. Please contact Acting Chief Brent Smith with questions: (209) 538-5721 or Brent.smith@ci.ceres.ca.us.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions, share concerns, learn more about Ceres Police Department’s work in our neighborhoods, and get to know our police officers. These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public occur during emergencies or other emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship-building with the community they serve and some may feel that officers on the street are unapproachable. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time. The Ceres Police Department plans to have more Coffee with a Cop events and Ceres businesses interested in hosting future events are encouraged to contact Acting Chief Smith to coordinate.
