Join the Citizen Police Academy Class of 2017

Post Date:11/11/2016 9:34 AM

What’s it really like to be a police officer? You’ve seen the TV shows, now live the experience. The Hoffman Estates Police Department is now accepting applications for its 27th annual Citizen Police Academy.  

An orientation will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the training room of the Police Department, 411 W. Higgins Road. Classes will then meet for 15 weeks every Tuesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., ending Tuesday, April 18. A graduation ceremony will be held the following Monday before the Village Board meeting. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, and reside, attend school or work in Hoffman Estates. Class size is limited, and spots fill up quickly. Applicants living in areas that do not offer a Citizen Police Academy may also be considered.

The Citizen Police Academy will give participants insight into police work and the functions of the Department. Students will get hands-on experience with real police equipment, such as squad cars, jail cells and duty gear, including firearms. Students will receive briefings from patrol officers, detectives and guest speakers. Topics to be discussed include home security, SWAT operations, crime scene investigations (CSI), gangs, club drugs and a K-9 demonstration, among others.

To download an application, visit www.hoffmanestates.org/cpa. Interested applicants can also contact Sgt. Mark Mueller at 847-781-2866 or mark.mueller@hoffmanestates.org.
