Wednesday, October 4, Prosper residents had the opportunity to start the day off with a cup of coffee and a chat with Prosper Police Department during the Coffee with Cops event held at Honeylou’s Coffee.
The national event aims to provide a neutral location with a casual atmosphere that opens an opportunity for real conversation where people in the community can sit down with officers to ask questions or simply share ideas or concerns.
Many people showed up early and brought their kids to the event, which Prosper Police Chief Doug Kowalksi says is extremely beneficial for a number of reasons. “It’s important that we build that trust and that the children know and understand that police officers are here to help and we are their friends,” said Kowalski.
