Tweets from Coffee with a Cop in St. Louis Live
Thursday morning, the St. Louis Police Department hosted its first Coffee with a Cop at three McDonald's in the city. The nation-wide program is designed to build relationships between police officers and the community.
"He's 3 pounds of fierce," says Darcella Craven of her dog Dragon @SLMPD 'Coffee with a Cop' event @Hardees. http://t.co/X1hFlfSsJl
A live-streamer known for her videos of Ferguson-related protests attended:
I'm watching @MissJupiter1957's "coffee with a cop." she's showing one officer the double tazing. Never seen anyone look that uncomfortable.
Others used the opportunity to thank officers.
.@SLMPD, for all that you do everyday & especially what you're doing today. THANK YOU! #CoffeeWithACopSLMPD
@SLMPD hope everyone buys the officers a coffee for their outstanding work!!!

@SLMPD Excellent! #CoffeeWithACopSLMPD reminds us that we ALL need to play a part in the partnership to make #stl the best place it can be.
Can't make coffee with cops but @SLMPD I have a question. Why do good cops protect the bad ones and allow public trust to be eroded?
How about serving justice to murderous cops and terminating bad cops? Too much like right? https://t.co/yFMaJpzq3X
Community policing at its best. Great job @SLMPD. Looking forward to sharing a cup and a conversation downtown. https://t.co/VbeOSM9Wke
