CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY
The Citizen Police Academy, established in 1995 is a 12-week program designed to give the participants a working knowledge of the Evanston Police Department and has produced over 800 graduates. It consists of a series of classes and discussions held once a week, on Wednesday evenings from 7p.m. until 9:30p.m. There are two academy sessions every year and each class size is limited to approximately 25 students. There is NO COST to anyone who resides or work in the City of Evanston.
The classes provide an in-depth view into various areas of law enforcement. It is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that effect law enforcement efforts in the City of Evanston, and how to develop a partnership with the police department.
Our goal is to create a better understanding, communication and partnership between the citizens and the police through education, in order to establish a safer community.
When residents take a more personal interest in their city and the protection of their community and neighborhoods, they enjoy a safer and closer relationship with their neighbors. Upon completion of the course, graduates receive a diploma, academy jacket, and a class photo. In addition, graduates will be encouraged to join the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association. This gives them the opportunity for continued education in the field of law enforcement and other related areas. It also allows them to have a more interactive association with the police department if they choose.
Community Oriented Policing plays an important and vital role in reducing crime in any community. Therefore the Evanston Police Department instituted the Citizen Police Academy, to improve communication and obtain input and support throughout the city. It is our hope that the graduates become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to the crime issues that are affecting our community. Graduates take their knowledge back into their neighborhoods where they can use it to enhance the quality of neighborhood life.
