Laramie's first Coffee with Cops kicked off Wednesday, October 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Starbucks Grand Avenue location. The coffee shop was bustling as several officers of the Laramie Police Department sat at the coffee shop to answer questions and talk with Laramie residents while enjoying coffee and cookies.

Officer Kyle Groose said that the goal of the event was to "bring police officers and community members together in a neutral space to talk about anything."

Laramie Police Department Lieutenant Gwen Smith said that she considered the event to be a success and would like to make it a regular occurrence in the Laramie community.
