(02/26/14) - Some people in Saginaw enjoyed a cup of coffee with police officers, while discussing issues concerning the community.
The second annual Coffee with a Cop event took place Wednesday morning at the East Side Soup Kitchen.
It's all part of getting to know your local officers and for officers to get to know their neighbors.
"Whether it's good or bad news, if they're celebrating a birth in the family or other family event that they include us in that to get to know each other on a personal level instead of police versus suspect relationship," said Jonathon Beyerlein, of the Saginaw Police Department.
Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to learn about the department's work in their neighborhoods.
