“Coffee with the Chief” provides residents with an opportunity to personally meet with Chief James Black and other Police Department staff in a friendly, casual and informal setting. Residents learn about current crime-related topics and have the opportunity to discuss other community matters of interest.  "Coffee with the Chief" events occur on a quarterly basis.  The events are typically an hour in length and are hosted at the Crystal Lake City Hall, 100 West Woodstock Street.  These events are also posted on our Nixle and Facebook sites.
