Are you in the North Dallas area? Why not stop by a participating McDonald’s of North Texas on Saturday, March 24 from 9am-11am for free McCafé Coffee and a conversation with Dallas Police Officers?
Coffee with Cops
Coffee with Cops is a partnership between the Dallas Police Department and McDonald’s of North Texas to boost officer and community relations by providing residents with the opportunity to interact with Police Officers working in their neighborhood. The partnership began in 2013 and has continued to evolve over the past six years. This year’s events will take place on March 24 and September 15 at the following locations throughout Dallas:
- Central Division: 407 N Lamar St
- Northeast Division: 11820 Abrams Rd
- Southeast Division: 1808 S. Beltline Rd
- Southwest Division: 3026 N. Hampton Rd
- Northwest Division: 3520 Storey Ln
- North Central Division: 17606 Midway Rd
- South Central Division: 632 E. R. L Thornton Frwy.
When we head Downtown to serve the homeless, we often meet Dallas Police Officers on patrol in the area. In fact, the location we set up is just a couple blocks from the Dallas Police Department. We’ve met several over the years and they are always friendly and knowledgeable. From advice on how to safely let the kids help us serve to the proper way to notify the city about our events, they’ve been a great help.
Personally, I love the idea of officers of all levels – including Sergeants, Deputy Chiefs and Neighborhood Patrol Officers – sitting down with residents to answer questions, discuss public safety and build relationships with those they serve. After all, it takes a village and building community through conversation is important.
