The Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) will be holding another Coffee With a Cop on March 12 at Philz Coffee, 233 S. Beverly Drive from 9 to 11 a.m.
“No meeting agenda, speeches, or specific topics. Just a chance to get to know your local police department over a good cup of coffee,” the department said in a social media post.
The department has held these events semi-regularly for years as a form of accessible public outreach and community relations building.
Chief of Police Mark Stainbrook joined residents at the last Coffee With a Cop on Jan. 12. While COVID-19 has made it more difficult to mingle with the people of Beverly Hills, he said that the event gave him an opportunity to “know what’s going on in the community.”
“These events have become such bridge-builders between us and our community,” BHPD Public Information Officer Lt. Giovani Trejo told the Courier. “We can’t wait to see all of you there.”
