The Tufts University Police Department is pleased to offer a nationally recognized program called “Coffee with a Cop.” “Coffee with a Cop,” is designed to break barriers between the police and members of the community in an open forum over a cup of coffee. This simple idea brings police officers and the community members they serve together-over coffee-to discuss issues and learn more about each other. Members of the community can ask questions, raise concerns, or just say hello and enjoy a cup of coffee with us.

During the year, TUPD will set up “Coffee with a Cop,” events at select times, dates, and locations. TUPD will also be available to coordinate “Coffee with a Cop,” events with university departments and student groups upon request. You extend the invite, we’ll bring the coffee.
To schedule a “Coffee with a Cop,” event, contact Sgt. Thomas Burdulis Jr / Community Policing Coordinator (617) 627-0934.
