Residents interested in learning more about the Mundelein Police Department and how it operates are invited to participate in Mundelein’s Latino Citizens’ Police Academy on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 7:00 PM Classes will run every Thursday for 10 weeks, culminating with a graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. Classes will take place at the Mundelein Police Department, 221 North Lake Street, Mundelein, IL 60060. The Police Department has offered this Latino Citizens’ Police Academy since 2013.
“The response from our Latino community has been overwhelming, and grows each time we officer the course. People walk away understanding that the Mundelein Police are here to make all our residents feel safe in our community,” said Eric Guenther, Mundelein Police Chief.
The Mundelein Police Department's Latino Citizens' 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. The program will not only consist of explaining and demonstrating the various aspects related to the police profession, but will also include other educational topics related to the ever changing laws as they pertain to the immigrant population. Please be advised that this program will be predominately in Spanish.
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 Commander Fred Kliora at 847-968-3772 or email@example.com.
