“Coffee with a Cop” is a nationwide program, with events in “175 cities and towns in 36 states”, According to coffeewithacop.com.
The website says the success of the program comes from the one-on-one contact it fosters between officers and citizens:
[Coffee with a Cop] removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving.
