Coffee with a Cop slated Friday in Crestwood

Coffee with a Cop slated Friday in Crestwood

Crestwood residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the city’s Police Department and its officers during a Coffee With a Cop event from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at The Barn, 1015 S. Sappington Road.

At the Coffee With a Cop event, residents and police officers come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee, according to a news release.

The majority of contacts officers have with residents occur during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some citizens may believe that officers are unapproachable on the street.

For more information, call Officer Dion Olson at (314) 729-4800.
