Coffee with a Cop at Flourtown Farmers Market this Saturday
Meet local Police Officers in an informal setting
Apr 1 2017  9 AM - 11 AM


The Springfield Township community is invited to come out to meet officers from the Springfield Township Police Department to discuss community issues and build relationships over a cup of coffeee.  The event begins at 9 AM on Saturday, April 1 at the Flourtown Farmers Market, 1800 Bethlehem Pike, Flourtown PA 19031.

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

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.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Chief of Police, Michael E. Pitkow. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

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.

Make sure you stop by and get a DNA kit done for your children.
