Did you join us for Coffee with Cops yesterday?

Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr., area commanders and officers from HPD Community Services teamed up with representatives from McDonald's on Thursday (October 30) morning to invite citizens to have "Coffee With a Cop."

Chief McClelland surprised many customers by appearing at drive-thru windows of several McDonald's locations and engaging in conversations ranging from public safety to rating how HPD was doing in keeping the city safe.  Customers also met with officers in their respective areas of the city to talk about enhancing neighborhood safety, as well as discuss issues and concerns impacting the community. 

Chief McClelland said,"What a great way to start the morning.  Any opportunity that we can enhance our police-community relationships, get out in the community and talk with folks, it's always a good thing."    

Citizens also had the opportunity to obtain crime prevention and personal safety materials, as well as meet HPD's newest crime fighting robot, Officer Defender.
