Brandon Chamber announces Coffee with a Cop, with Brandon Police

May 12th 2023, BRANDON MS – The Brandon Chamber is proud to announce Coffee with a Cop with the Brandon Police Department. The program brings police officers and the community members they serve together – over coffee – to discuss issues and learn more about each other.

Community policing has long been considered a framework for establishing trust between the community and the police. However, over time the character and composition of our nation’s communities have changed due to shifting demographics, more commuters, and the introduction of different communication methods such as websites and social media.

The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down the barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve.

FOR POLICE OFFICERS – Coffee with a Cop provides opportunities, outside of crisis situations, to relax and chat with residents in the community.

FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS – Coffee with a Cop events provide access and opportunity for distraction-free conversations with our local police officers.

No speeches or specific topics. Just informal conversations about what matters to community residents… all with the aim of creating a space where there are no communication barriers , no speeches, no agenda, just honest conversations about issues affecting the community, sports, and great places to eat (everyone knows police know the best places to eat).

Brandon Police Chief Wayne Dearman is committed to Coffee with a Cop, and offering opportunities for our the officers and community to chat, and remove barriers. The fine folks at Genna Benna’s and Good Boy Po’Boys are kind enough to host the event and provide free coffee for all those who attend. The plan is to host Coffee with a Cop every few months. This is a great opportunity for Brandon residents to come to Downtown Brandon, and enjoy some coffee and casual conversation with some of Brandon’s finest.

Here’s a schedule of the first three Coffee with a Cop events planned by the Brandon Chamber. We certainly hope Brandon residents take the opportunity to come enjoy conversation, but also to show support for our Brandon Police.
