Multiple law enforcement agencies enjoy coffee with the community
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It’s National Coffee with a Cop Day, and multiple different agencies gathered on the Casper College Campus to enjoy coffee and treats.
Brenden LaPointe, a Casper Police Department Officer, said this was a great way to have an informal conversation with community members.
“The reason I took this job is that I can talk to people and help them. It’s very rewarding to talk to people on a consistent basis,” LaPointe said.
He adds it was great to have small talk with community memes and answer questions about police work or about being a school resource officer.
“I figure my job is to make friends with people,” LaPointe said.
This year, coffee with a cop was hosted by Casper College and their outdoor area by the Student Union building was a setting to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
