Federal Way police to hold Coffee with a Cop next Friday

The Federal Way Police Department invites the community to their quarterly Coffee with a Cop event on Friday, April 21.

Police say they want to continue their effort to “break down barriers” and earn the public’s trust through the events, which encourage residents to join them for a cup of coffee and a conversation.

The Coffee with a Cop program has “spread like wildfire” since the first cup was poured in 2011. Today, more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve have participated in this national program.

The event will be from 8-9 a.m. on Friday, April 21 at Black Bear Diner, which is located at 32065 Pacific Highway South. Police say the event is “agenda free” with no speeches or topics, only informal conversations about what matters to the residents and community.

Next quarter, the city plans to move the event to a Saturday.
