ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Friday morning, APD officers provided an opportunity to get to know your neighborhood law enforcers as folks got their daily cup of 'Joe,' under the Golden Arches.

The Albany Police Department joined the nationwide 'Coffee with a Cop' event, offering a free cup of coffee and a talk with officers at McDonald's at the Albany Mall.

They were at McDonald's to answer any questions you've always wanted to ask. APD hopes the relaxing environment of this event will help make it easier for the community to interact with officers and build partnerships.

"We just think it's a great opportunity to sit down and have that one on one conversation with the citizens.  To put out some information that they need to be made aware of," said Phyllis Banks, Albany Police Media Manager.  

Albany Police hosted three 'coffee with a cop' events last year in South and East Albany.
