Coffee with a Cop is an opportunity for police officers and community members to come together in an informal venue to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. 

"We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers," said Lynnwood's Chief of Police, Steven Jensen. "These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships."

In over 80 cities in 24 states, Coffee with a Cop has done wonders for community trust and partnership building. One of the keys to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that it removes the physical barriers that routinely exist between police officers and community members, allowing for the relaxed, one-on-one interactions which are the necessary foundation of partnerships. Informal contact in a friendly atmosphere increases trust between police officers and the members of our community, which is critical to public safety and problem solving.

All community members are invited to attend. This event aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time!

The Lynnwood Police Department would like to thank Starbucks for their support of this event.
