RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Rutherford police invite residents and business owners to next month's "Coffee With a Cop," a highly successful program designed at discussing community issues, building relationships – and drinking free coffee.

"No agenda or speeches -- just a chance to ask questions and voice concerns," Police Chief John Russo said.

The majority of contacts the public has with law enforcement comes during emergencies or emotional situations -- not always the best times for relationship-building, the chief said.

"Coffee With A Cop" is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

It removes any barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one conversation -- "one cup at a time,” Russo said.

"The coffee and sweets are free, [and] the conversation is informal and informative," the chief said.

Drop in at the Boiling Springs Savings Bank branch at 25 Orient Way any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7.
