The Greenwood Police Department is inviting residents to drink free coffee with police officers and ask them questions.
Most residents typically meet the police during a traffic stop or an emergency, so the event this week provides the opportunity for them to meet the police and ask questions in a more comfortable setting, assistant chief Matthew Fillenwarth said. Chief John Laut, Fillenwarth and other uniformed officers will drink coffee and chat with residents at the event.
Coffee with a Cop is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday at the food court in Greenwood Park Mall. The mall security office has donated the coffee for the event.
