What a great opportunity!  Free training for you and your employees.  The Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC), along with Mayor McLaughlin and the Southwest Conference of Mayors, is offering an educational seminar to be presented by the ILCC.  The seminar will be held on Thursday, May 8th, 2014 from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 South Ravinia Avenue.

Members of the ILCC legal staff and investigations team will be speaking about state laws and new legislation as well as routine inspection procedures and common violations.  A representative from the Secretary of State’s office will also present  a session on Operation Straight ID.  The seminar, with stress placed on the importance of carding and the prevention of over-serving, is applicable for owners, managers and staff.  There will also be time for questions and concerns.

This offering provides an excellent opportunity to further educate your employees on responsibly serving and selling alcohol.  You are encouraged to have your staff attend the May 8th educational seminar.  Make certain that your employees are prepared for every situation that may come up.

Crestwood Police Department Seeks Cadets


The Crestwood Police Department is looking for people between 14 and 19 years old
that would be interested in our Police Cadet Program. The main purpose of this program is to help develop leadership and communication skills for their future. While we focus on law enforcement and public safety, we work towards teaching these youths communication, leadership, chain of command and community services. In the past some of our training has included speakers and trainers from the FBI, Illinois State Police, Cook County Sheriff’s Police, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and many others.

Our goal is to give them as much exposure as possible to a wide variety of people and operations to help them in thinking about good communications and future career possibilities. It is not necessary to specifically want to go into law enforcement . We use this as opportunity to teach them skills that will help provide them a start towards understanding what it is all about. Due to the nature of some of the things we deal with, we ask everyone to keep their activities here confidential so that we don’t violate anyone’s rights. Cadets are required to attend our meetings and trainings. We try and limit them to once a month during the school season; however we usually have additional meetings and trainings in the summer. Cadets also assist the community by providing us with park security, traffic control, and community events both in Crestwood as well as surrounding suburbs.

Applications are available at the Police Department Monday- Friday between 9-9



Crestwood Village ordinance prohibits parking on ANY village streest between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00a.m. The reason for this ordinance is so Police will be alerted to abandoned vehicles or suspicious vehicles that require investigations. This ordinance also ensures that all streets throughout the Village will be open to fire and rescue equipment in the event of an overnight emergency. This is especially necessary in areas where narrow streets can block large fire trucks. We will continue to enforce this ordinance. Thank You for your cooperation with this ordinance. The initial fine for this violation is $75.00. This is a Village wide ordinance. PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR LATE NIGHT AND OVERNIGHT GUESTS ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS AS WELL!

Garbage and Refuse Collection

It is very important that each resident makes themselves aware of important Ordinances in the Village. The following link will educated you on the Garbage and Refuse Topic.

Please be aware that Garbage cans are not to be taken out until 6pm the night before pickup and removed from the curb side by 8pm on day of collection. This is not always the case for many. The Village Trustees have instructed the Police Deaprtment to inforce this ordiance.  A warning will be issued  for the first offense and a ticket will be issued on the second offense. A neon green sticker will be placed on your can as a warning. Please be aware this will be your one and only warning before a ticket is issued. Our goal is to keep our Village a beautiful and proud place to live. With your help we can achieve this.
