Advisory

Join the East Brunswick Police Department for "Coffee with a Cop " October 26th at the Brunswick Square Mall

On October 26, 2019, officers from the East Brunswick 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 11:00am on October 26th at the Brunswick Square Mall, 755 Route 18 South. The Brunswick Square Mall is graciously opening its doors to help us host the event. Panera Bread and Cinnabon have kindly agreed to provide free coffee and refreshments.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in East Brunswick’s neighborhood.

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 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. Please join us for "Coffee with a Cop " October 26, 2019 at the Brunswick Square Mall from 11am to 1pm.

Please contact the Community Policing Unit with questions at CommunityPolicing@ebpd.net or by phone at 732-390-6938.
