Coffee with a Cop scheduled in Paducah, KY

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - On July 25, officers from the Paducah Police Department will be having a sit down with the community members and drink coffee.

All community members are invited and the event starts at 8 a.m. at Chick-Fil-A, 5193 Hinkleville Road, Paducah KY.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department's work in Paducah's neighborhoods. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a more relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

"We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers, " said Chief Brandon Barnhill. "These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships."

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

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.
