City Accepting Applications For Citizen Police Academy

Citizen Police Academy

Geneva residents interested in learning how police officers work to keep their community safe are encouraged to register for the City’s 2020 Citizen Police Academy.

The weekly classes will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday nights from Jan. 9 through March 26 at the Geneva Police Department. The program was created to give residents an overview and insight into the department along with a behind-the-scenes look at police operations. During previous academies, participants learned about the police hiring process, use of force, crime scene investigations, tech crime, traffic enforcement, crime prevention, drug education, and active shooters among other topics.

Citizen Police Academy members must be 21 years or older and be a resident or a business owner in the City of Geneva.

Applications for the academy are available on the City’s website or at the Geneva Police Department. The program is free, but space is limited.

Completed applications can be dropped off or mailed to the Geneva Police Department, 20 Police Plaza, Geneva, IL 60134. The deadline is Friday, Dec. 13.

For more information, contact Police Sgt. Brad Jerdee at 630-232-4736 or via email.
