My friend recently got a job at Tim Hortons, a popular donut/coffee chain in Canada. He was told that if police officers wanted a drink, they get it for free. Is this true? If so, why?
No wonder why police officers hang out at coffee shops so much.

I worked at a Pizza Hut and we gave cops free meals everytime. The result is a high police presence in the establishment. It just makes the place safer. Customers appreciate it to, especially in high-crime areas, and that can help against competition that doesn't do it. Very common practice.

I worked 3 years in Law Enforcement and one of my favorite perks was the free/discounted meals that we got.

Our local Waffle House usually comped us drinks, as did the Copper Kettle. Krispy Kreme had a *one free donut per night* policy, as did Einstein Bros. Bagels. Papa John's Pizza had a blanket 50% discount + free soda, which applied even when we were off duty if we showed our badge. That was pretty sweet.

Working nights, I didn't get a chance to go too many other places in uniform, but the Day Watch guys made out like bandits from the stories they would tell us at briefing!

I think they get them for free here too. I know I always see cop cars at Krispy Kreme and Sheriff Harry Lee at about 50 donuts on their opening night.

Wow! I did not know that cops really did get free donuts. I thought that they paid for their donuts. Isn't that some form of bribery? Aren't cops supposed to be spreading themselves evenly around while on patrol instead of being attracted by a donut and coffee?

Fly, we all have to eat. I suspect if you timed cops at donut shops or restaurants, you will see they spend roughly the same time as you spend on your lunch hour.
