“With so much foot traffic on Larchmont Boulevard, it’s the perfect place to host Coffee with a Cop,” said LAPD Wilshire Division’s Senior Lead Officer (SLO) Dave Cordova.

According to Cordova, who oversees Larchmont Boulevard as part of his beat, monthly Coffee with a Cop is an informal gathering where residents can get to know their officers and vice versa. There aren’t any speeches or statistics, just conversation and questions answered. Most recently, this event took place on May 24 at Peet’s Coffee, 124 N. Larchmont Blvd. 

Starbucks on Larchmont Boulevard is where the gathering is often held. But this month, SLO Cordova reached out to Peet’s, and manager Angie Jaco jumped at the opportunity to host. She said that many of her regular customers were so happy and excited to have the police come for coffee. Some even arrived early while others called to confirm it was still taking place. Jaco said, “It’s nice being part of the community that LAPD cares for. I love it.”

Coffee with a Cop rotates around the Wilshire Division district and will be back on Larchmont Boulevard in about six months. If you missed this one, look out for the next one.
