‘Cars, Coffee and Cops’ Event Planned for Las Cruces

Oct 8, 2019

The Las Cruces Police Department is hosting its first Cars, Coffee and Cops event to meet area residents who have a passion for custom and classic vehicles.

The free event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12, at Young Park, 850 S. Walnut St. Those who wish to show their custom or classic vehicles are encouraged to arrive early for the best parking spots. Dunkin’ Donuts will provide 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 sold for parts. VIN etching begins at 9 a.m. Saturday and is free to anyone – car show participants and attendees – who brings a vehicle to the event.

Residents are encouraged to stop by, meet with LCPD officers, and discuss any safety or law enforcement concerns they may have.
