Coffee with a Cop

Guadalupe County Constable Pct. 2 deputy Chris Aviles talks with a group of community members during Coffee with a Cop on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 at Court Street Coffee.

Occasionally, community members will have issues that are necessarily emergencies, they want to discuss with law enforcement, but aren’t really sure how to address it.

That’s where Coffee with a Cop steps in.

For the second time now, several area law enforcement officers gathered at a local coffee shop to sit and visit with each other and the community.

The idea is to give area residents an open invite to sit and talk with the law enforcement officers in an informal setting.

The open dialogue can be about what they like, what they don’t like, what they would like to see change and what they would like to see stay.

The cadre of law enforcement that joined in the conversations on Friday included Guadalupe County Sheriff Arnold Zwicke, interim Seguin Police Chief Russell “Rusty” Pancoast, Constable Pct. 1 James Springer, Constable Pct. 2 Jimmy Harless, deputies, officers and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers.

Sometimes the best conversations are had over a cup of hot coffee.

These types of open dialogue can help create a better, safer community for all.

And that’s something everyone can get behind.
