Sara: Coffee With a Cop Refreshes Community Trust

Engaging our community is a top priority for the Bloomington Police Department. We share the community’s concerns and make every effort to address them. 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 is 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.

Our thanks goes out to the Coffee Hound for hosting (the March 4) Coffee with a Cop, providing free coffee, and staying open late for the event. The event provided a friendly atmosphere and helped strengthen relationships between police officers and the members of our community.
