(West Fargo, ND) -- The West Fargo Police Department’s next Coffee with a Cop event will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 19th, at Sandy’s Donuts with guest speakers from the Red River Valley SWAT Team.

The Coffee with a Cop program is designed to increase understanding between residents and the police. At these events residents learn about law enforcement and can interact with officers on a personal level.

This 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.
