Not many things are better than free Starbucks coffee. But free coffee from Starbucks and a chance to have a frank and open conversation with IUPUI campus police officers may actually be one of them.
In an effort to break down barriers and open a casual dialogue between community members and campus police, the campus Barnes & Noble café is giving away free coffee to people who sit down and chat with IUPD officers this coming Tuesday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This is the first ever Coffee with a Cop at IUPUI, intended to remove agendas and allow students and community members to raise concerns in a non-threatening environment. Coffee with a Cop started in 2011 in Hawthorne, California, and has since spread across the nation and even to places in Europe and Africa.
“The purpose of the event is for people to come socialize and actually get to know the police officers on campus… I’d hope somebody would have an interest in that and learn who it is that’s patrolling their streets and their academic community that they’re in almost every day,” Beau Parker, a student police officer of two years, said.
Community outreach events don’t always see high attendance, so Coffee with a Cop’s appearances on JagNews brings hopes for a larger crowd.
“Some community outreach going on with the department, it’s just not very well broadcasted sometimes, or it’s not very recieved by the community,” Parker said. “Who wouldn’t want to come down for a free cup of joe?”
