Coffee with a COP

   Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

                                  8:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M. Inside the Legends Room at the Jack B. Kelley Student Center.


The West Texas A&M University Police Department is joining with the United States Department of Justice to conduct the second national Coffee with a Cop Day to be held on October 4th, 2017. We are proud to be joined by officers of the Canyon Police Department, and deputies from the Randall Count Sheriff’s Office for this special event on campus.  In addition, we are being sponsored and supported by the Whataburger Corporation, the WTAMU Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the staff of the Jack B. Kelley Student Center.  The innovative program was started by the Hawthorne (California) Police Department in 2011 in response to tensions between the police and the community. The idea has become a resounding success for police departments to have conversations with their communities! Today more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve have participated in this program. In fact, Coffee with a Cop was highlighted in the Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing as a way to build community trust and confidence.

Please join us for this event on Wednesday, October 4th, and become part of a national movement focused on building trust between law enforcement and the communities we serve. Coffee and breakfast pastries, along with other treats will be provided, so stop by and join with us for this worthwhile campus community event!
