The Hoffman Estates Police Department is accepting applications for the 31st annual

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.
