Alameda Police Department’s (APD) Crime Prevention Technician Michaelia Parker, left, spoke with local businessman Tom Bierly during last Tuesday morning’s Coffee with a Cop at the West End Starbucks. Parker staffs APD’s crime-prevention unit, C.O.P.P.S., which stands for Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving. The coffee klatsch offered residents the opportunity to speak with police officers, ask them questions and voice their concerns about crime in the city.
