Citizen Police Academy
The Buffalo Grove Police Department began a Citizen Police Academy in 1997.
Our certified police instructors teach the academy students about all aspects of police work including the use of RADAR and LIDAR units in speed enforcement, traffic crash investigation, crime scene processing, crimes against property and person(s), emergency dispatch center tour, firearms safety, and much more.
The Citizen Police Academy is scheduled in the fall. The program is an eight week course, which meets one evening each week.
