MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — University of Minnesota police will be handing out doughnuts and safety tips this week with hopes of keeping the Twin Cities campus safe.

The three-day event starts Tuesday morning at Pleasant Street and Pillsbury Drive in Minneapolis. University President Eric Kaler is scheduled to make an appearance at 7:30 a.m.

University Police Chief Greg Hestness says the “Coffee and Donuts with the Cops” event helps improve cooperation between officers, students, faculty and staff.

It’s also an opportunity for the university to promote its various safety campaigns, including “Safety is Easy. The Pavement is Hard,” which encourages people to be careful around all the construction on campus.

Officers will also be handing out doughnuts Wednesday morning at West Bank Plaza and Thursday morning at the St. Paul Student Center.
