Cup of Joe With an LEO?

LEO you ask?  Law Enforcement Officer.  That’s right, it’s time for another Coffee with COPPS event.

Next Friday, August 16th, officers from the Overland Park Police Department’s Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving Unit (COPPS) will be at HyVee’s Caribou Coffee, 8501 W 95th Street, from 8:00 am to 10:00 am.  Caribou Coffee is providing ½ priced coffee to patrons attending the event.

The COPPS unit works hard to help strengthen the partnership between members of the community and the Police Department.  They invite the public to come by and strike up a conversation with officers.  This event they will also have qualified Bicycle Officers on hand to speak with citizens about policing in their communities with bicycles.  It would be a great opportunity to bring your children, if they aren’t back in school yet, to learn about bicycle safety.

Mark you calendar and we’ll see you there!
