Enjoy coffee with a cop

Share a cup of coffee with members of the Superior Police Department during “Coffee With a Cop,” which kicks off at 10 a.m. today at Dunkin’ Donuts, 3110 Tower Ave. The event encourages community members and officers to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee. Everyone is invited to attend.

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, 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.

According to Community Service Officer Bonnie Beste, these interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” she said. For more information, contact Beste at 715-395-7401 or besteb@ci.superior.wi.us.
