West Seattle Coffee With a Cop: Watch for the sequel

If you had hoped to check out the first West Seattle edition of Coffee With a Cop at the Junction Starbucks this afternoon, but couldn’t get there … there will be a sequel. It seems Starbucks thought it had been rescheduled, explained Crime Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Burbridge, but nobody got the memo, so she and some officers showed up, including the bicycle squad, as evidenced by parking outside:

Southwest Precinct commander Capt. Pierre Davis dropped by too:

We haven’t yet verified the new date – hoping to get that info tomorrow – but we’re hearing early May. This is a national program, and Starbucks is supporting 100 of the meetings coast-to-coast this year.

    So glad to have Tom and the rest of the bike squad in West Seattle, especially in the Junction.    Thanks, SPD!

    Love that on-street bike parking on California, just in front of Sbucks, but even the bike squad doesn’t use it.

    It’s kind a funny sight to see Lora Swift in a Starbucks.  And I second FIZ’ comment about Tommy Burns: a terrific police officer and a super nice guy.

    What a super cool idea!

    It’s been great to see SPD bike patrol on the West Seattle Bridge trail and East Marginal Way every day this week! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
