Rutherford County Observes National Coffee With a Cop Day
Today marks the first Wednesday of October. With that, comes National Coffee With a Cop Day.
Each year, this national event gives communities an opportunity to connect with local law enforcement over a casual cup of joe.
Police officers from the Murfreesboro Police Department and the Smyrna Police Department participated in this event this morning and afternoon.
Several officers gathered at local Starbucks' and McDonalds' locations to give community members a chance to discuss issues and needs.
This yearly event allows community members of all ages to form better relations with men and women in uniform, as well as put a face to the individuals who work to protect their community on a day to day basis.
