The Union Gap Police Department is inviting residents to enjoy a cup of coffee with a police officer next month. The 2019 National Coffee with a Cop Day is Wednesday, October 2. The local event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at Jean’s Cottage Inn, 3211 Main St. in Union Gap.
A news release from the department says "National Coffee with a Cop Day brings men and women in uniform together with their communities to connect over a cup of coffee. The opportunity for open dialogue and improve communication creates a valuable bridge to relationships in communities."

The Yakima Police Department and the Yakima County Sheriff's Office also participate in the program as well.
