SALT LAKE CITY— As part of the growing “Coffee with a Cop” movement in Utah, officers from 11 law enforcement agencies will visit with patrons at locally-owned McDonald’s restaurants from 8-10 a.m. Monday, September 29.
The restaurants will provide a free cup of coffee to customers Monday—which also happens to be National Coffee Day—creating a comfortable environment in which the public can ask questions, voice concerns and get to know the officers in their neighborhood. In addition to the Salt Lake City Police Department, participating police agencies run from Logan to Provo – click here for a map—including Unified, West Valley City, West Jordan, South Jordan, Murray, Orem, Provo, Woods Cross, Logan, Cache Co. Sheriff, and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing by improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
Law enforcement expresses its thanks to the locally-owned McDonald’s restaurants that made this month’s Coffee with a Cop event possible.
