South Bend's 'Cup with a Cop' kicks off first event this year


South Bend Police say they can't stop crime without you!

They are hoping events like "Cup with a Cop" will help you start a conversation with officers.

The first event was Friday. It gave people an opportunity to sip coffee with police and ask them questions or bring up concerns about what's happening where they live.

"We just want people to know that our officers are available to talk to. We call them our community neighbors, we want them to know that we are here to protect them and serve them,” said South Bend Police Spokesperson, Ken Garcia.

If you couldn't make it to Friday's event you're in luck.

"Cup with a Cop" is happening again Thursday at the Martin's on Mayflower and Western. It starts at 9:30 a.m. and goes until 11:30 a.m.
