TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Tallahassee Regional Operations Center will be hosting an event in honor of National Coffee with a Cop Day October 4, 2017. The Coffee with a Cop movement is aimed at breaking down barriers between law enforcement and the residents of a community, fostered by an open conversation shared over coffee.
 
FDLE Tallahassee’s inaugural event will be held on the front lawn of FDLE’s headquarters at 2331 Phillips Road in Tallahassee from 8:00am to 9:30am. The event is open to members of the public, and coffee will be provided by FDLE members free of charge.
 
National Coffee with a Cop Day, promoted by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), was launched last year in partnership with a number of agencies across the U.S. and Canada. The movement has since grown to include more than 2000 participating agencies.
