La Crosse police officers meet with community members over coffee
Second year of ‘Coffee with a Cop'
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Local officers and the community came together Wednesday morning over a cup of coffee.
La Crosse’s Neighborhood Resource Officers hosted citizens for a ‘Coffee with a Cop’ day. The event gave officers a chance to meet and interact with community members in a casual setting.
Citizens were able to talk to the officers about their concerns and issues they may be dealing with in our community.
“This is a perfect way for the community to step out, meet with our officers, discuss issues that are important to them and at the same time give our officers a better opportunity to understand and truly know what is affecting the community,” said La Crosse Police Department Sergeant Tom Walsh.
The ‘Coffee with a Cop’ events were hosted at La Crosse’s two Cabin Coffee locations and the Uptowne Cafe and Bakery. This is the second year la Crosse officers have hosted the event.
