Coffee With a Cop:

On  Friday  October  7,  2016,  the  Santa  Monica  Police  Department (SMPD) will be participating in National Coffee with a Cop Day.  Coffee with a Cop was launched in 2011 by the Hawthorne Police Department to encourage community policing. Since the program began, events have been hosted in every state of the United States and has also expanded to Canada, Europe, Australia and Africa.  SMPD has previously hosted Coffee with a Cop in the City.   

The event promotes an environment for the community and officers to interact in a neutral space over a cup of coffee.  The key to the event is creating an opportunity for the community and officers to communicate openly outside of a crisis type situation that typically brings officers and the community together.

Officers and staff from SMPD’s Community Affairs Unit will be at the following six locations and times throughout the City:

 La Monarca Bakery – 1300 Wilshire Blvd, from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.

 Café Bolivar – 1741 Ocean Park Blvd, from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.

 Groundwork-1601 Montana Avenue from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

 Pete’s Coffee – 2439 Main Street from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

 Starbucks – 1900 Lincoln Blvd from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

 Lo Cal – 2214 Pico Blvd from 12:00 p.m.- 2:00 p.m.

Community members are encouraged to join SMPD at any of the six locations.
