If you’re a morning regular at the McDonald’s on Royal Lane in Dallas, you probably noticed a few welcoming men and women in uniform as you grabbed your coffee.
DART Police offered greetings, smiles and conversations over coffee with locals visiting the McDonald's on Royal Lane during a Coffee with a Cop event this morning from 7-9 a.m.
Coffee with a Cop aims to spur communication between police officers and the citizens they serve by removing agendas and creating opportunities for locals to ask questions, voice concerns and know the officers in their neighborhood.
“This is a way for us to reach out to the community and make ourselves available,” DART Lieutenant J. Rivera said. “They understand our job and that we’re working together. At DART, we’re all about Five Star. This is part of that. This is how people see we’re with them.”
