Orland Park Police To Host "Coffee With A Cop"
Posted on 10/10/2016

The Orland Park Police Department will host its next “Coffee With A Cop” event on Monday, October 17 from 8:30 a.m. until 10 a.m.

Police personnel will be at the Panera Bread at 15252 South LaGrange Road, inviting community members to join them for coffee and to discuss community issues.

"Coffee with a Cop" offers a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Orland Park neighborhoods.

Most contacts law enforcement have with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. "Coffee with a Cop" allows for relaxed one-on-one interaction.

“We hope that people feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Chief Tim McCarthy. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
