Rumson police held their second annual casual Coffee with a Cop event on Wednesday and, by all accounts, it was a success.

The two-hour informal chat at Brennan’s Delicatessen was designed “strengthen the partnership between police officers and members of the community,” a Facebook post from the department said.

People were encouraged to stop at the popular deli from 9 to 11 a.m., chat with officers, ask questions and provide feedback to the police department.

Take a look at some photos provided by Rumson police on Facebook for a glimpse into the day. (Just click to enlarge.)
