“Responsible Serving” – The TIPS Program
The Village is home to many restaurants and bars providing opportunities for citizens to enjoy fine dining and entertainment. With nearly 70% of adults in the U.S. drinking alcohol, responsible serving of alcohol is important to the safety of citizens who live and work in the village.
The Greenwood Village Police Department offers a program known as Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS) to local restaurants, bars, and liquor establishments. The Village offers the training program designed to teach servers to help prevent intoxication, underage drinking, and drunk driving.
The TIPS Program is an effective program used to teach the skills and knowledge servers need to make sound decisions about alcohol sales and service in the village. The TIPS Program offers real-life scenarios and proven strategies for dealing with a variety of alcohol-related situations.
The TIPS Program is offered by the Greenwood Village Police Department every month. Each class is 5 hours long and participants must complete a written exam to successfully complete the program. The cost to attend is $30. Please call for dates and times.
If your business is interested in participating in the TIPS Program, please contact the Police Department at 303-773-2525 for more information or to register for an upcoming training. For more information on the TIPS program .
