[3/16/2021 ALBANY, NY.] – “Coffee Drop for Cops,” an initiative coordinated and sponsored by grassroots political organization American Police Officers Alliance, is a nationwide program designed to thank local police officers, boost morale, and help communities show support for their law enforcement. American Police Officers Alliance launched this initiative at the beginning of 2021 and plans to continue running the program throughout the year.
The first “Coffee Drop for Cops” happened earlier this month in Albany, Bethlehem, and Schenectady, New York. These police departments were nominated by members of the community, and were delivered by hand by the nominees. Coffee and sweet treats were delivered to the Albany County Sheriff Department, Albany Police Department, Bethlehem Police Department, and Schenectady Police Department. The local volunteers of these drops opted to cover the costs of the coffee and treats, which will allow the organization to provide even more drops in the coming months.
“We started ‘Coffee Drops for Cops’ to bring some joy and support back to local departments on behalf of their communities. Ultimately we want our police to know that they still have support. Being nominated for a coffee drop is a small gesture with a big impact to let police know that their communities and our organization stand behind them and stand with them,” American Police Officers Alliance Executive Director Daniel Stuebs commented.
American Police Officers Alliance is committed to protecting and defending law enforcement within the political process. The organization helps to elect local leaders who respect and understand the decisions police officers are forced to make each day, and bring awareness to the public on current issues facing police officers and how they can get involved and take action.
It is free to nominate your local police to receive a Coffee Drop. For more information and to nominate your local department, visit https://americanpoliceofficersalliance.com/coffee-drops-for-cops/
