Naperville’s Citizen Police Academy gives citizens insight into the innerworkings of police operations, practices and objectives. Instruction consists of classroom lectures, interactive discussions and hands-on demonstrations focusing on various aspects of police work, including patrol, investigations, forensics, and special response, among others.

“CPA is an excellent opportunity for a behind-the-curtains peak at how the police department in Naperville does business,” said Police Chief Jason Arres. “The class allows residents to see what the day-to-day looks like for our personnel, and it introduces them to the many different ways we are working to protect and serve our community. If you’ve ever wondered about our policies, tactics, equipment, training or any other topic concerning policing in Naperville, you’ll learn all that and more at CPA.”

Notes about time, place, applicant requirements

All classes are free and will be held at the Naperville Police Department, 1350 Aurora Ave., from 6:30PM to 9:30PM. Course content and activities dictate that class size is limited to 24 participants. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and must either reside or work in the City of Naperville. A criminal background check is conducted on each applicant.

Interested candidates should print and complete the Citizen Police Academy application and waiver found at www.naperville.il.us/cpa and return the signed documents no later than Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2024, to Jim Pacetti by email at PacettiJ@naperville.il.us, at fax number (630) 305-7004, or through the mail or in person at the Naperville Police Department, 1350 Aurora Avenue, Naperville, IL 60540.
