Every year there is one day set aside for law enforcement across the nation to sit down with people in the community and enjoy a cup of coffee.
Sergeant Travis Skar with the Highway Patrol has been attending Coffee With A Cop in Minot for 2 years.
He enjoys this event because it gives him the opportunity to see people outside of a traffic stop.
Coffee With A Cop was started for the reason that officers and community members could discuss issues and learn more about each other in comfortable setting.
“It gets law enforcement in a different setting, not on a traffic stop. We’re more accessible, gives us a chance to answer questions that the public has,” said Sergeant Travis Skar, Highway Patrol.
Coffee With A Cop day was started in 2016.
