Fair Lawn police dish up ‘Coffee with a Cop’

SHOUT OUT: Fair Lawn police officers will meet with citizens this week to discuss community issues, build relationships – and drink coffee.

The department encourages citizens to attend Coffee with a Cop, from 9-11 a.m. Thursday at the Empress Diner, 13-48 River Road.

The coffee is free.

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 this morning.

“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.

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.
