Why Coffee with a Cop?

Coffee with a Cop is a community initiative launched in the United States in 2011 before spreading to Australia. It’s now held regularly across the state in many communities, partnering with Victoria Police.  

Coffee with a Cop brings local police officers and the community members they serve together–over coffee–to discuss issues and learn more about each other.

Aimed to help build trust, provide everyone with a voice, enhances cultural awareness, strengthen understanding and encourage casual conversations to help put real faces and personalities to each side.

The key to Coffee with a Cop’s growing success is that it opens the door for interactions outside of the crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together.

The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down the barriers between police officers and the community they serve.
