The Citizens' Police Academy has proven to be a very popular program within our Community Policing efforts. Class members will meet and interact with many members of the police department and will be exposed to many facets of law enforcement. Each week different topics are presented covering patrol operations, investigations, traffic enforcement, support services, and training. The experience is not limited to classroom lectures alone. Class members will be given the opportunity to participate in a patrol ride-along, participate in firearms training on the range, practice mock traffic stops, and visit the 9-1-1 central dispatch center. People who attend 70% of the sessions are eligible to graduate and then join the Schaumburg Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (

Through the Citizens Police Academy, we hope to provide an environment that will help foster relationships between the police and community. It is our desire that the graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to quality of life issues that face our community.
