One university’s police department is taking a coffee break to get to know the students a little better. Jacksonville State University Police Department held a “Coffee with a Cop” event in the Brewer Hall Lobby.
Students were invited to come by, have a cup of coffee, a few sweet treats and get to know the university officers a little better. JSU Police Communications Supervisor Jason Sumner says student safety is the department’s top priority.
Sumner says it’s important that students feel comfortable approaching officers when they need help. As of right now the University Police Department holds an event for its students once a semester, but are hoping to add a few more in the future.
