Early Tuesday morning at local coffee shop “But First, Coffee” the Newman Police Department invited community members to sit down with them and have a cup of coffee. The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve by removing agendas and allowing opportunities to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers. Above, an officer and a local resident sit down to have a talk with each other and resolve concerns.
