Free Coffee, Conversation with UCF Police and Victim Advocates

Free Coffee, Conversation with UCF Police and Victim Advocates

Coffee With a Cop encourages candid conversations with campus police officers in exchange for a free cup of coffee.

The campus and local communities are invited to join the UCF Police Department and UCF Victim Services for Coffee With a Cop this Wednesday.

The event will go from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, at Café Bustelo in the Student Union.

Attendees can chat with officers and victim advocates about any topic, all while enjoying a free cup of coffee courtesy of Café Bustelo.

This is will be the third time UCFPD and UCF Dining Services are partnering on Coffee With a Cop.

Victim advocates are joining this event in honor of January’s Human Trafficking Awareness Month. Human trafficking is believed to be the third-largest crime in the world, according to the FBI, and it’s often referred to as modern-day slavery.

Orlando is a particularly popular area for human trafficking due to the booming tourism industry, and college-aged people are especially vulnerable because traffickers often use social media to target and entice them.

Advocates and officers will answer questions about human trafficking, and attendees are encouraged to bring any other questions and feedback.
