On July 22, 2017, officers from the Bryan Police Department’s Neighborhood Enforcement Team will host a “Lunch with a LEO”.  The Bryan Police Department will be hosting a lunch meeting and will call this “Lunch with a LEO” instead of the traditional “Coffee with a Cop”.  It is an informal meeting with the community and will be held at an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend. The event will be from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on July 22nd at The St. Theresa Church in Bryan, located at 1212 Lucky St. in Bryan.  Please contact Sgt. Jason James with questions: (979) 209-5539 or jamesj@bryantx.gov.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Bryan’s neighborhoods.  Neighborhood Enforcement Team officers will be on hand to discuss neighborhood issues, listen to complaints, build partnerships with community members, and just visit while having a cup of coffee.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
