After a great turnout a couple of months ago, the Evansville Police Department will host another "Coffee with a Cop" event Tuesday morning beginning at 7am.

As with the first go 'round, the idea is simple, EPD officers will get together at Donut Bank on Diamond Avenue for a cup of hot coffee, and invite the public to join them to talk about whatever.

Have a concern about something going on in your neighborhood? Talk to them about it. Want to know some of the inner workings of the department? Ask. Curious about their thoughts on how the <insert sports team here> will do this year? Just ask. There's no agenda, no presentation by the department, simply a couple of hours "coffee talk".

As Chief Billy Bolin told me before the first "Coffee with a Cop", the goal is to help erase the negative stigma the public can sometimes place on officers simply because they're doing their job. It's a great idea, and one I hope to see continue for some time.
