Gadsden City Police are inviting citizens to join them for breakfast Saturday morning.
They will hold their own Coffee with a Cop event Oct. 5 at the Chik-fil-a on South Fourt Street from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Patrol Commander Paul Cody says it's part of a trend towards community policing. Cody says this is a chance for officers and residents to be comfortable talking with one another. Residents can ask questions of the officers and they in turn can share what it's like to be on patrol.
"We want to have the opportunity to let citizens engage with us, where we can talk one on one, and just let people know that we're just average people also," Cody said.
