The Clermont Police Department held its monthly Coffee with a Cop community relations event on Wednesday, January 17th at Papa’s Diner, 626 East Highway 50, Clermont.

Coffee with a Cop is a program designed to enhance the community members relationship with law enforcement officers and the citizens of the communities that they serve. Businesses throughout the area often host the Coffee with a Cop program to exhibit the support of the community and the support of the local first responders in the community. It also provides a neutral location for real conversations about issues that matter.

Members of the police department included officers from the community relations division, criminal investigations, patrol, and administrative personnel. Clermont Police Chief Chuck Broadway often emphasizes the importance of communication between Clermont’s citizens and the officers who serve them. Broadway believes in being active in the community and encourages his officers to do the same.

One example is an event scheduled for Wednesday, January 24th, beginning at 4 pm. The community event titled “Tip a Cop,” will be held at Texas Roadhouse, 2547 South US-27. Police officers will serve as servers and assistants to the wait staff to raise funds for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. This is a program in which police officers raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics by carrying the Flame of Hope throughout the state in honor of Special Olympics athletes.

Enjoy your favorite meal and leave a tip to help these athletes or their families participate in this annual event. Your donation is crucial to the success and the mission of never charging an athlete or their family to participate. 100% of the tips donated are given to the Special Olympics, Florida athletes.
