(West Fargo, ND) -- The West Fargo Police Department’s next Coffee with a Cop has been scheduled.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 18th, at Sandy’s Donuts at 301 Main Avenue West.

Guest speaker retired Lieutenant Greg Warren will be in attendance. Warren retired last week after 48-years of service with West Fargo PD.

"The Coffee with a Cop program is designed to increase understanding between residents and the police," said the Department in a statement released to WDAY Radio. "At these events residents learn about law enforcement and can interact with officers on a personal level."

The event is sponsored by the Community Outreach Programs and Services Unit. The COPS 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 COPS Unit, and the completion of cultural awareness and diversity training for staff.
