OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Residents in and around southwest Omaha can get to know their local police officers a little better over coffee.

The Omaha Police Department’s southwest precinct is holding a “Coffee with a Cop” event Thursday morning at 7 a.m. at Roast Coffee House at 1904 South 67th Street.

Omaha police want to get to know community members outside the constraints of emergency and crisis situations. To do that, they’re inviting the public to sit down for a cup of coffee with officers from their communities.

The invitation is part of a nationwide movement by law enforcement agencies.

The concept is a simple: Police and residents come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues and build relationships over a cup of coffee.
