OPD Serves Coffee With Cops

Coffee is served. Have a cup with a cop.

That’s the goal of Coffee with a Cop, an OPD program that launched on Tuesday to help improve communication with the community.

The first edition debuted at Elkhorn’s Heartland Café.

The idea is to create a neutral environment where police and civilians can discuss community issues, build relationships, all over a cup of coffee.

Elkhorn’s Patrick Ervin said, “This makes you feel like, oh yeah, cops are people too. I just think it is kind of cool. I've never seen anything like this in Omaha.”

Don't worry if you missed out Tuesday morning. There is another Coffee with a Cop scheduled for March 3rd from 8 to 9 in the morning at the McDonalds at 30th and Ames. More are expected to follow.
