Community members get to know Wichita Falls police over “Coffee with a Cop”

Local News

If you drove by McDonald’s on Kemp Tuesday morning and wondered why there were several police cruisers there, you missed the sign that said “Coffee with a Cop.”

Tuesday’s event coincides with National Police Week. It was meant for community members and law enforcement to get to know each other in a casual setting and discuss whatever they wanted.

One of the officers attending was Timothy Johnson, who said these events are a great way to show that police aren’t just interested in laying down the law.

“Anywhere from taxes to Dallas Cowboys or the fire department. I mean, it can be anything and history of the city, there’s been some of that too,” said Johnson.
“It’s just our way to get out in the community in a capacity other than law enforcement.”

Tuesday’s Coffee with a Cop is the fourth in which Wichita Falls police have participated since January of 2017.
