Officers in one city want to know what is concerning their citizens, and plan to discuss it over a cup of coffee.
New Bern is hosting another round of Coffee With A Cop Tuesday evening.
Police hosted the same event earlier this year, in May, to talk about community issues with residents and just get to know each other better.
At the Tuesday night event, police will be on hand at the Wendy's along Neuse Boulevard starting at 7 p.m.
Chief Toussaint Summers said, "We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers. These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships."
