Austin Police Department outreach goes buddy cop

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

The Austin Police Department announced last week the April dates for its Coffee with a Cop initiative, where residents can get to know the officers who patrol their neighborhoods – over a cup of coffee. There are five meet-and-greets scheduled for throughout the month, each in a different area of town. Those with questions or concerns to express – or just a thirst for caffeine – can find the full schedule here. The first, featuring Central West and North Central District representatives, is scheduled for the Capital Plaza McDonald’s, 5451 N. I-35, from 7-9 a.m. You never know, it might make that next routine traffic stop marginally less awkward.
