The Las Cruces Police Department is hosting its first Cars, Coffee and Cops event to meet area residents who have a passion for classic and custom vehicles.
The free event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12, at Young Park, 850 S. Walnut St. Area residents who wish to show their classic or custom vehicles are encouraged to arrive early for best parking spots.
Besides the free coffee and donuts, LCPD will offer free VIN etching to those who wish to have their vehicles protected. Etching the VIN on all windows is a countermeasure to motor vehicle theft as it reduces the value of vehicles stolen and are sold for parts.
Residents are encouraged to stop by, meet with LCPD officers, and discuss any safety or law enforcement concerns they may have.
