The West Chicago Police Department will be hosting a Citizens Police Academy this fall.
This is a chance for West Chicago residents to get a behind the scenes look at what it takes to be a police officer. Participants will meet officers with different areas of expertise who will teach them about their specific duties in a classroom setting followed by hands on demonstrations.
Some possible training topics include: patrol responsibilities, traffic unit duties, investigations, defensive tactics, building searches and more.
For more information on this program, please contact Community Relations Officer Robyn Nielsen at (630) 293-2222 or RNielsen@westchicago.org. Application deadline is August 25, 2021.
