The next West Fargo Police Department Coffee with a Cop will be 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17, at Sandy’s Donuts in West Fargo (301 Main Ave. W.) with guest speaker Kristi Engelstad from Sanford Ambulance. The Coffee with a Cop program is designed to increase understanding between residents and the police. Residents learn about law enforcement and can interact with officers on a personal level.
This event is sponsored by the Community Outreach Programs and Services Unit (C.O.P.S). The C.O.P.S. Unit organizes the department’s efforts to recognize West Fargo’s changing demographics and strengthen relationships with all members of the community. These efforts include planned community events, officers dedicated to the C.O.P.S. Unit, and the completion of cultural awareness and diversity training for staff.
