Coffee with a Cop from Bothell PD

Members of the Bothell Police Department are heading over to Starbucks from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Aug. 12 to have for Coffee and Conversations.

The Bothell Police Department is hosting Coffee with a Cop at the Starbucks in Canyon Park's QFC on Aug. 12.

Members of the Bothell Police Department are heading over to Starbucks from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12, to have for coffee and conversations with local police.

Instead of connecting with cops only when there’s an emergency or something illegal has happened, the event is a chance for citizens to ask questions, voice concerns and get to know some of the local officers.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Chief Cummings. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

The Bothell PD’s Coffee with a Cop is part of a national initiative supported by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, which is part of the Department of Justice, and is aimed at improving relationships between officers and community members “one cup of coffee at a time.”

The event will be hosted at the Starbucks inside the Canyon Park QFC, located at 22833 Bothell Way NE.
