Captain Morrison Initiates First “Coffee with a Cop” Meet


VNC Outreach Officer Sima Kostovetsky, originator of “Coffee with a Cop,” an unidentified resident, and Captain Brian Morrison of Pacific Division at the Cow’s End in Venice Tuesday morning.

(21 August 2019) LAPD Captain Brian Morrison answered all the attendees’ questions and explained the “whys” to many of the answers Tuesday morning for the first ever “Coffee with a Cop” meet at the Cow’s End.  There were off and on about 10 people attending.

The program was newly elected Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Outreach Officer Sima Kostovetsky’s idea. She wanted a platform to get some of these questions that people ask of the police answered. If the first meet is any indication, they will all be successful. Everyone walked away satisfied.

The meet was suppose to be from 8 to 10 am with LAPD Pacific Division senior lead officers. No officers arrived. Some had given up and gone home. Then Captain Brian Morrison of the Pacific Division showed up about 9:15 and everyone was impressed. He explained a few of the hangups that had occurred that morning and then proceeded right into answering questions.

    It would be great to get the actual Crime Statistics for Venice so they may be part of the actual agenda of the VNC meetings and that they also be posted on the VNC website. The current presentation at the VNC meetings are too vague.
