FHN Family Counseling Center's Partnership for Success Project, with support from the Freeport Police Department, is pleased to offer a free Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education Training (BASSET) to Freeport-area businesses that sell and serve alcohol.
BASSET, regulated by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, is constructed as an alcohol awareness program specifically designed for alcohol sellers and servers. BASSET is a four-hour training and will be held from 8:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. Thursday, June 27 at the Eagle's Club, 1200 W. Galena Avenue in Freeport.
The Freeport Police Department supports the BASSET program for area alcohol retailers. “Educating those who sell and provide alcohol will enhance accountability and awareness and reduce underage sales of alcohol to minors,” said Freeport Chief of Police Jerry Whitmore.
The BASSET training will include the physical properties of alcohol, state statutes, local ordinances and DUI laws, identification techniques and dram shop information. BASSET is a resource and tool for local merchants to use to ensure compliance with state and local laws on alcohol sales and use.
FHN Family Counseling Center's Partnerships for Success Project (PFS) is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services. The project works toward reducing underage drinking in the Freeport community.
