The Des Moines Police Department will be coming to Highline to have coffee and talk to students. 

The Des Moines Police Department is sending officers to Highline for students to sit down and ask questions on Feb. 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Building 8, Mt. Townsend room.

This is part of a nationwide program called Coffee With a Cop, which hopes to bring officers and the community they serve closer together in a casual environment. 

"It's a great community outreach event, where officers can interact with the community in a casual setting," said Sgt. George Curtis of Highline Public Safety.

Last year was the pilot for the program here on campus, this year will be the second annual Coffee with a Cop. 

The Des Moines Police Department had five officers in uniform show up, including Chief George Delgado last year. 

"Come talk to these officers, they want to be here to help students succeed," said Sgt. Curtis. 

Around 30 students showed up last year

"We would like for the program to be more successful this time around," with more students, Sgt. Curtis said. 

Officers may also walk around and engage with students outside of the coffee shop. 

The program aims to help the community become in touch with the officers that serve them.
