The Passionate Mind Institute Announces “Connect with a Cop” Program

One of the first initiatives under development at the Passionate Mind Institute is our "Connect with a Cop" program which will provide citizens the opportunity to meet and have lunch with a law enforcement officer, paid for by the institute. This program is primarily intended for high schoolers and young adults interested in a career in law enforcement, but we want to make it available to any citizen who has never had the opportunity to interact with a law enforcement officer. Here is how the program will work:

  • Utilizing the program can be initiated in one of three ways:
    • A citizen interested in meeting and having lunch with a law enforcement officer can contact the Passionate Mind Institute to coordinate the meeting
    • A coordinator or point of contact at a law enforcement agency can arrange a meeting
    • A law enforcement officer who would like to arrange a lunch with a citizen can contact the Passionate Mind Institute to make the arrangements
  • Once the lunch meeting is arranged, the Passionate Mind Institute will provide a gift card or lunch voucher to the pre-determined restaurant
We are looking to launch this program by the end of the year. The program will initially be piloted in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, but the goal will be to eventually expand it beyond the region. Current needs for this program include:
  • Volunteers at local law enforcement agencies willing to be coordinators/points of contact for the program
  • Local restaurants willing to sponsor these lunches
  • Donations to fund the program
