The Newport News North Police Precinct officers invite residents to coffee at Vancostas Restaurant tomorrow morning, April 7th, during a Coffee with a Cop event. At Coffee with a Cop citizens are able to make personal contact and build relationships with officers that patrol their neighborhoods. Citizens can ask police officers about a variety of topics anywhere from crime statistics in their area to what officers do when they are off.
Each precinct holds these events on a regular basis and this is of the many ways that the Newport News Police Department is working to strengthen partnerships with the community. There are no agendas or speeches, just a chance to enjoy a cup of coffee and ask questions, voice concerns and simply get to know officers better. To learn more about Coffee with a Cop and other Newport News Police events contact the department’s Public Information Office at 928-4290.
