Both the Flower Mound and Highland Village police departments will be hosting Coffee with a Cop events this week.
FMPD’s Coffee with a Cop is scheduled for 7-9 a.m. Wednesday at Novel Coffee Roasters (formerly known as Trio Craft Coffee), 2650 Flower Mound Road.
HVPD’s event will be from 3-5 p.m. Friday at Starbucks, 2301 Justin Road.
Coffee with a Cop was started in 2011 in Hawthorne, California because the police department wanted to interact more, and more successfully, with the community. The effort has become a popular event among many police departments across the country, as they look to meet more residents and engage in conversations with them.
“Coffee with a Cop is a great way for the community to get to know members of the Flower Mound Police Department, ask questions, address any concerns, all while enjoying a great cup of coffee,” FMPD wrote in a Facebook post.
