Citizen Police Academy & Youth Police Academy

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a part of the law enforcement profession? The St. Charles Police Department offers an annual Citizen Police Academy every spring. 

The Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is meant to give residents and business owners a better understanding of how the St. Charles Police Department operates.  Participants will get to meet officers face to face and discover what daily life is like for them. Some of the areas covered in the CPA include:

Safety Town

The Safety Town program teaches safety to five and six year olds in a wide range of areas including fire safety, stranger awareness, bicycle and pedestrian safety, gun safety, animal awareness, poison awareness, and water safety. Traditionally there are eight 9-day sessions each year with a maximum of 25 children per session.

Crime Prevention

We encourage you to take advantage of the information and programs that are offered by the City of St. Charles Police Department. Whether it's by properly using a child's car seat or by registering your family's bicycles, we feel that by taking precautions, citizens can reduce their chances of becoming victims of an accident or a crime.
