YONKERS, N.Y. -- When is the last time you sat down for coffee or talked to a police officer? Never? City residents can do both Friday at Raceway Diner when the Yonkers Police Department takes part in the second annual Coffee with a Cop day.

"It humanizes everybody and lets us sit down and see people as they are," the event's founder, Sgt. Chris Cognac, of the Hawthorne Police Department in Hawthorne, Calif., said in a CNN interview posted on the initiative's Facebook page here.

"There's the hard questions. Sometimes people will come in. They'll have issues," Cognac said in the report.

But it's also a chance for police and citizens to "get to know each other," he said in the CNN interview.

Members of the Yonkers Police Department got a chance to speak to Cognac over the summer before holding the department's first Coffee with a Cop event, according to police.

Friday's Coffee with a Cop is 9-11 a.m. at the diner, 833 Yonkers Ave., Yonkers.
