Coffee With a Cop
at Sacks on the Beach
on Valentine’s Day
Share some love, and coffee, with officers from Redondo Beach Police Department on Wednesday, Feb. 14, from 8 to 10 a.m. during the latest edition of RBPD’s ongoing Coffee With a Cop series. Coffee With a Cop aims to bring police together with members of the community in a friendly, informal environment to discuss community issues, build relationships and enjoy a good cup of coffee. All community members are invited to attend. The events give residents a chance to interact with police outside of emergencies or emotional situations and ask about RBPD’s work throughout the city.
For further information, email Officer Mike Diehr at email@example.com, or call 310-379-2477, ext. 2493.
