Often, when someone comes across a cop, it's not usually at a moment when they're calm, collected, and ready for a chat.

But local law enforcement agents want you to get to know them, not just in your hour of need, but when you don't need anything at all, except maybe a beverage and a smile.

Public Information Officer for the Bangor Police Department, Jason McAmbly, says everyone's invited out to meet some of the local police force and just chit-chat.

" 'Coffee with a Cop' events are opportunities to build relationships in order to better problem solve with the people officers serve. No speeches or specific topics. Just informal conversations about what matters to community residents, centered nicely around a cup of coffee."
