A group of police officers in Tempe, Arizona, were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop when a customer complained that they felt uncomfortable. This happened on the 4th of July and the customer had reportedly said they don't feel safe with all those officers in the building, as stated by AZ Central.

"According to a tweet from the Tempe Officers Association, six Tempe Police Department officers were drinking coffee before their shift at the Starbucks near Scottsdale and McKellips roads when a barista told them a customer "did not feel safe" by their presence."

It was then that a barista had allegedly asked the officers to move out of the customers "line of sight" or for them to leave the building entirely. The Tempe Officers Association had more to say about this.

"This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019... We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue."

A spokesperson named Reggie Borges is still trying to piece the incident together and gather details about what actually happened.

Borges said, "We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community. We've reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores."
