FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Officers from the Indiana State Police, Fort Wayne Police Department, Allen County Sheriff’s Department, Indiana Conservation Officers, Indiana State Excise Police, and the IPFW Police are coming together this morning in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee with citizens.
The event runs from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at Come As You Are Community Church, located at 7910 S. Anthony Boulevard in Fort Wayne.
Indiana State Police Sergeant Ron Galaviz says the “Coffee with a Cop” program “provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about these departments’ work in Fort Wayne and Allen County neighborhoods.”
“We hope that community members will feel comfortable asking questions, bringing concerns, or simply getting to know our officers,” said Galaviz. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”
