Public Invited to Share a Cup of Coffee with Police

The Community Policing Section would like to announce its first Coffee Connections event. Overland Park residents will have the opportunity to speak with local police officers over a cup of coffee tomorrow, March 15th. Officers from the Overland Park Police Department's Community Oriented Policing Unit will be available from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. tomorrow at Whole Foods, 7401 West 91st Street.

"We want to learn more about the community, its needs, and how the residents and business’s perceive us and the job we do," says Officers in the unit.

Overland Park Police will be available at the cafe for questions and conversation with members of our community. The program is intended to strengthen the partnership between the Police Department and the community. Residents can ask specific or general questions related to their neighborhood.
