SHOUT OUT: Fair Lawn police are continuing their extremely popular “Coffee With a Cop” series on Tues., May 19.

The department encourages citizens to come and discuss community issues, build relationships – and drink free coffee — from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Gotham City Diner, 39-10 Broadway.

Part of a massive effort by local police nationwide, Coffee With A Cop “provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Fair Lawn’s neighborhoods,” Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

“The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations,” he added. “Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship-building.”

What’s more, Metzler said, “some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street.

“ ‘Coffee With A Cop’ breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction…one cup at a time,” he said. “No agenda or speeches — just a chance to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers in your neighborhood.”

“Coffee with A Cop” is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the country.
