In celebration of National Coffee with a Cop Day on Wednesday, Oct. 3, Redwood City police officers plan to be at the Starbucks Reserve, 2227 Broadway, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. to meet residents and answer questions, according to the city.
The informal event requires no reservations or presentations. The Redwood City Police Department regularly hosts Coffee with a Cop events throughout the city as a way to build and maintain strong relationship with community members, with the ultimate goal of strengthening public safety.
Coffee with a Cop began in Hawthorne, Calif., during a brainstorming session. The first event was held at a Mcdonald’s in the city and, since then, “there have been thousands of Coffee with a Cop events in all 50 states and 14 different countries in four languages,” according to the National Coffee with a Cop website.
