The Owensboro Police Department wants to talk. No, no, you're not in trouble, they just want to meet you, ha! It's time again for Coffee With A Cop and the men and women of the OPD would love to get to know you and for you to get to know them.

Here's more info from OPD:

On Saturday, August 29th, members of the Owensboro Police Department will be
available for community interaction in an informal setting to discuss community
issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. You can meet us from 7:00 am to
9:00 am at McDonald’s Restaurant in Wesleyan Park Plaza, 2750 Frederica
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States
Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar
events are being held across the country, as local police departments strive to
make lasting connections with the communities they serve. The program
provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and
learn more about the Owensboro Police Department and our work in your
neighborhoods. All community members are invited to attend.
The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during
emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most
effective times for relationship building with the community, and some
community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street.
Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through
improving relationships between police officers and community members one
cup of coffee at a time. We look forward to meeting you.
