Coffee with the Cops
In December 2007, the Glen Ellyn Police Department began a new public outreach initiative dubbed Coffee with the Cops.  On the first Saturday morning of each month, the Chief of Police and/or the Deputy Chief(s) of Police play host to interested residents.  Coffee with the Cops provides residents with the opportunity to interact with law enforcement personnel in a non-enforcement environment.  Participants can talk about neighborhood issues such as traffic or parking; seek information on various police programs; and learn about specific police duties and responsibilities, such as investigations, traffic accident reconstructions and evidence collections.

BASSET

In April 2008, the Glen Ellyn Village Board passed an ordinance amending the Glen Ellyn Liquor Code to require alcohol awareness training for those supervising the sale of alcohol and those selling and serving alcoholic beverages.  This training, known as the Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training, or BASSET, provides alcohol sellers and servers training regarding alcohol related laws and issues.  The BASSET program also provides alcohol sellers and servers with additional knowledge on alcohol and its abuse, and helps to ensure that Glen Ellyn and surrounding communities are a safe place in which to live.

The goals and objectives of the BASSET program are:

  1. Train and educate sellers and servers to engage in responsible alcohol service.
  2. Reduce and/or prevent driving under the influence occurrences and alcohol-related fatalities.
  3. Reduce and/or stop underage sales and underage drinking.
  4. Create safer communities and establishments where alcohol is served. 
  5. Educate owners, managers and staff regarding state and local laws related to alcohol service. 

If you are interested in registering for the BASSET program, please fill out the electronic form below and submit.  The program will be held in the Glen Ellyn Civic Center, located at 535 Duane Street.  Classes must have a minimum of 5 and maximum of 25 participants and there is a $20.00 per person fee for attending the seminar.  For any additional questions regarding BASSET, please contact the Police Department at 630-469-1187.
