Ventura County Credit Union (VCCU), a not-for-profit financial institution, has partnered with local law enforcement in Ventura County to host Coffee with a Cop events. These free gatherings are open to the community.
Coffee with a Cop allows community members to get to know their local officers over a free cup of coffee and a pastry in a relaxed atmosphere. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions about crime, burglary or other pressing issues in the community and have stress-free conversations with law enforcement officers. The events are designed to benefit community members and law enforcement alike by building relationships “one cup of coffee at a time.” The upcoming coffee gatherings are listed below:
- August 7, 2018, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. with Camarillo Police Department and Starbucks on Las Posas – VCCU’s Camarillo branch, 711 E Daily Drive, Camarillo, 93010
“We are excited to be able to provide our members and community the opportunity to get to know our local officers by relaxing over a cup of coffee,” said Marilyn Peake, community outreach officer at VCCU. “These events are such a positive experience for everyone involved. On behalf of VCCU and myself, I’d like to thank the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and Oxnard Police Department for serving our community and taking the time to get to know the individuals who live, work and play here on a more personal level.
VCCU hosted its first Coffee with a Cop event in April 2018. In addition to the two upcoming events in May and June, the credit union is already working with local law enforcement agencies to arrange future Coffee with a Cop gatherings at various branch locations.
“We are excited to be able to provide our members and community the opportunity to get to know our local officers by relaxing over a cup of coffee,”
