What’s it really like to be a Police Officer? You’ve seen the T.V. shows, now live the experience. 
The Hoffman  Estates  Police  Department  is  accepting  applications  for  the  31st  annual 
Citizens  Police Academy beginning Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

The  Citizens  Police  Academy  is  a  great  hands-on  experience  that  will  give  participants 
insight  into police work and the functions of the department. Students in the Citizens Police
Academy will get hands on experience with real police equipment such as squad cars, riot gear, and
other law enforcement tools, including  firearms.  Students  will  receive  briefings  and  lessons
 from  Patrol  Officers,  Detectives  and guest speakers.

MISSION OF THE ACADEMY
The purpose of the Citizens Police Academy is to foster positive communication between citizens and
police through education.  The Academy creates a nucleus of well-informed citizens and greater
insight into police practices and  services.   It is  our hope  that graduates of the Academy will
share  their new knowledge with other members of the community when the opportunity arises. 
Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen understanding of the role and function of their police
department.

Applicants must be at least 18-years old and reside, attend school, or work in Hoffman Estates.
