The Rio Rancho Police Department is hosting a “Coffee with a Cop” event Thursday at Starbucks (1810 Southern Blvd.) from 9-10:30 a.m.

Citizens will have the opportunity to learn more about RRPD, ask questions and raise concerns about their community.

The “Coffee with a Cop” events are nationwide and began in 2011. The mission is to break down the barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve.
