Omaha, NE (AP) - Omaha police want to get to know community members outside the constraints of emergency and crisis situations. To do that, they're inviting the public to sit down for a cup of coffee.
The invitation is part of a nationwide movement by law enforcement agencies called "Coffee with a Cop."

The concept is a simple: Police and residents come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues and build relationships over a cup of coffee.

Omaha's first "Coffee with a Cop" will be held at 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Heartland Café in the Elkhorn community. Another will be held at 8 a.m. March 3 at McDonalds on North 30th St. in Omaha.
