About This Event
In an effort to connect Springfield families with their local law enforcement officers, Battlefield Mall is hosting the first-ever Coffee with a Cop event. This Saturday, May 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., local families are invited out to the mall’s JC Penny East Court for a meet-and-greet experience, complete with coffee, light bites and the chance to show appreciation for those who protect the Springfield community.
In honor of National Police Week, Coffee with a Cop brings together representatives from the Springfield Police Department, Greene County Sherriff’s Office and Missouri’s State Highway Patrol. The local law enforcement officers and community members are invited ask questions and learn more about each other’s role in community safety efforts, over a cup of coffee and light bites.
“We’re delighted to bring this unique and family-friendly event to Battlefield Mall for Springfield residents to partake,” said Battlefield Mall’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, Amanda Estes. “Battlefield Mall is honored to help strengthen the relationship between local law enforcement and the Springfield community through this engaging and interactive event.”
In addition to the meet-and-greet component, Starbucks will provide coffee, juice and light snacks for community members to enjoy. This kid-friendly event features engaging activities including a photo booth and goodie bags, available to the first 50 kids, under 10-years-old. Battlefield Mall’s Coffee with a Cop will also include a special appearance by the Greene County K-9 Unit, including Deputy Sherriff, James Craigmyle, and K9, Lor, stars of the hit A&E tv show, “Live PD.”
