The Auburn Police Department will host another Coffee with a Cop event to give residents an opportunity to meet officers and address any concerns.
This summer, Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler said he introduced the idea to build a more positive, trusting relationship with the community. He said the event lets citizens sit down with police in a casual, neutral setting, which provides both parties a chance to get to know one another.
The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 4 at Play Space in downtown Auburn. Butler said the venue at 63 Genesee St. is perfect for families, as it will allow parents to meet with the officers while children can explore and play.
"Join your neighbors and police officers for coffee and conversation," Butler said in a press release. "No agenda or speeches, just a chance to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers in your neighborhood."
