Sherman Police are inviting communities members to meet their local law enforcement officers and join them Tuesday for National Coffee with a Cop Day.


The event to be held from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at McDonald’s, 2217 Texoma Parkway, Sherman, is meant to foster communication and trust between police officers and citizens.


Attendance is free. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.


Coffee with a Cop was first held in Hawthorne, California in March 2011. Since then, the annual meet-and-greet event has spread to all 50 states and is now hosted by police departments in nine countries. This year’s Coffee with a Cop Day also falls on National Night Out, which many communities celebrate in early August or October as a cookout with police and first responders.
