Mundelein Police Department to Offer Citizen Police Academy

Residents interested in learning more about the Mundelein Police Department and how it operates are invited to participate in Mundelein’s Citizen Police Academy on February 21, 2018 at 7 p.m. Classes will run every Wednesday for 10 weeks, culminating with a graduation ceremony on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7 p.m. Classes will take place at the Mundelein Police Department, 221 North Lake Street, Mundelein, IL 60060. The Police Department has offered this Citizen Police Academy since 2003.

“We always have an enthusiastic response to our Citizen Police Academy, so that’s why we continue to offer the course. I’m certain that those who have participated in our academy over the years, now have a much better understanding of and appreciation for who we are and what we do,” said Eric Guenther, Mundelein Police Chief.

The Mundelein Police Department's Citizen Police Academy provides an excellent opportunity for citizens, who live and/or work in or near the Village of Mundelein and are between the ages of 18 and 55 years of age, to become familiar with the day-to-day operations of the Police Department. Attending the academy will help participants gain a better understanding of the procedures, guidelines, responsibilities, demands, personnel, equipment, policies and laws that guide the department's decisions.

The course is not intended to make citizens into police officers, but to allow citizens to learn more about police operations. Citizens will become informed as to the actual role of the police and in return, the police will benefit from the wealth of knowledge the citizens can give about their community.

For more information on the upcoming academy, please call Officer Dan Schmidt or Officer Sarah Wirth at 847-968-4600.

To apply for the academy, please contact Jenni House at 847-968-3770.
