Coffee with a Cop works because it’s simple. This program creates an atmosphere that facilitates communication by breaking down the traditional barriers that so often exist between Rolling Meadows Police Officers and the citizen’s that we serve.
Coffee with a Cop provides a relaxed, neutral atmosphere with no speeches, no agenda and no preset subjects. It allows a citizen in the community to sit down, one on one with an officer and discuss whatever concerns it is that is important to him or her. The conversation is personal and important to the citizen and equally to the officer that is speaking with you.
Coffee with a Cop provides a “face” for both the officer and the citizen to get to know each other and form a working trust by understanding the mutual goals they both have, a better community for all of us. Coffee with a Cop provides “distraction free” time with an officer, no pending radio calls or cell phones going off, just good communication over a cup of coffee that is provided FREE to anyone who wishes to have casual conversation with us.
