The next Hinsdale Citizen Police Academy has not been scheduled yet but will likely begin towards the end of 2018.

During this course, Officers from the Department will instruct citizens in several areas including Law, Crime Prevention, Patrol, Investigations, D.A.R.E., Juvenile, Traffic, Recruitment, S.W.A.T., K-9 and Firearms training. The Academy is not designed to make participants certified police officers, nor does it give the graduates authority to act as police officers.  The focus of the curriculum is to provide an informative overview of the fundamentals of police operations. This two-way communication will certainly be an effective and successful way to build a partnership between the community and the police department.

If you would like more information on this program, please contact Officer Michael Coughlin at the Hinsdale Police Department, 630-789-7084 or mcoughlin@villageofhinsdale.org.
