The Calumet City Police Department is now accepting applications for the 2023 Citizens Police Academy. Calumet City’s Citizens Police Academy gives citizens insight into the inner workings of police operations, practices and objectives.
Participants in the academy will learn how they can help prevent crime in the community and become resources for improved community/police relations. Sessions include interactive discussions and hands-on demonstrations of various areas of policework. Academy graduates are encouraged to take their knowledge back to their neighborhoods, where they can use it to enhance the safety and quality of life in Calumet City.
All classes are free and will be held at the Calumet City Public Safety Training Center. Individuals who apply for the Citizen Police Academy must be 21 years of age and reside and/or work in the City of Calumet City. The training will commence mid February of 2023. Interested candidates should print and complete the Citizen Police Academy application and waiver.
