Coffee with the Cops will be held this Saturday in the Community Room at the GEPD from 8am-10am. Please join us with any questions or concerns.

Congratulations to Glen Ellyn Police Officer Kevin Riggle who was presented with the Valor Award from the Hundred Club of DuPage County on October 25, 2017. On March 24, 2017, a motorist had driven off of the roadway on Fawell Boulevard near the College of DuPage. Her car entered a pond, drifted out about 100 feet and was submerged under the water. Officer Riggle responded to the scene and was told by others about the frigid water temperature. Without hesitation, he stripped off his gear and swam out to the car where he found the woman unconscious below the surface of the water. He pulled her up onto the roof of the car where she was able to regain consciousness. He kept her alert while they waited to be pulled to the shore by firefighters from the Lisle-Woodridge Fire Department. Thanks to Officer Riggle’s heroic effort, the woman made a full recovery. The Hundred Club of DuPage County is a private, non-profit charitable organization founded in 1982. It is a civilian organization that offers assistance to families of law enforcement and firefighting personnel killed or injured in Dupage County. The Hundred Club Valor Award is a life-long honor for law enforcement officers and firefighters for heroic actions above and beyond the normal expectations of their duties.

Coffee with the Cops will be held this Saturday at the Glen Ellyn PD Community Room from 8 am to 10 am.

Earlier this spring, Glen Ellyn Officer Rick Perez was selected as a Life, Well Run Community Hero. Life, Well Run is an International City/County Management Association (ICMA) initiative to raise awareness of and appreciation for the value professional managers bring to building ethical, efficient, effective local government and great communities we're proud to call home. It's not too often that the parking enforcer is considered one of the most helpful and friendliest of police officers. But this Hero uses his institutional knowledge, friendly approach and great attitude to win them over. As a community service officer, one of Rick's many responsibilities is to lead parking enforcement efforts. Every day, he ensures that all regulations are met and educates those who may be unaware of parking issues or requirements. Through all types of weather conditions, Rick helps commuters and residents with a smooth flow of traffic and parking locations in the Village's busiest and most congested areas. Rick walks the thin line between the needs of business owners in the central business district and those of commuters, residents and shoppers. He sees this as an opportunity for partnership between business owners and the municipality. Rick has the autonomy to directly communicate with businesses and to collaboratively address issues and make improvements, or to provide educational opportunity to all stakeholders.
