Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a part of the law enforcement profession? The St. Charles Police Department once again is hosting its annual Citizens Police Academy, which will run from March 14 through May 30, 2019.
The St. Charles Police Department has launched a new Law Enforcement Club for St. Charles Community Unity School District 303 high school students interested in law enforcement careers.
The student-led club is open to any St. Charles high school student interested in pursuing law enforcement as a career, or with a general interest in police work. The club offers hands-on opportunities to learn, discuss current events, and network with guest speakers who work in the law enforcement field. Giving back and volunteering in the community also is a central theme of the club.
A long-time advisory board member for The Salvation Army Joe K. Anderson Community Center in St. Charles, Jim Wheeler made it his life mission to make sure no child in the Tri-Cities went without presents on Christmas morning. The program Jim started 31 years ago continues on. Drop Boxes are located at several places around town, including the lobby of the Municipal Building. Contact the Salvation Army at 630.377.2769 for more information.
At the City, building quality relationships with our citizens and fostering a sense of community for all is a priority. Recently, the Police Department conducted its first Spanish Citizen Police Academy at St. Patrick Catholic School in St. Charles. Participants met with officers and learned what daily life is like for them.
Not too long ago, an infant was found deceased in a backpack along a roadway in unincorporated Wheaton. Incidents like this are incredibly sad, and they should not happen. Please help us spread the word about Illinois' Safe Haven law, which gives a desperate parent a safe alternative to abandoning their baby.
Newborns up to 30 days old can be brought to any hospital, emergency care facility, staffed police station or staffed fire station–no questions asked. The baby is taken to a hospital for a check up and then placed with a pre-approved adoptive family.
Have an idea by kids for kids? The St. Charles Youth Commission wants to hear it. Funding is awarded to youth-designed and youth-driven projects directed toward the promotion of healthy lifestyles among young people in the community. Any group or organization can apply for funds throughout the year by completing the funding application.
Agendas for public meetings are generally posted here on the Friday prior to the meeting. Minutes are posted after they are approved by the City Council or respective commission. Contacts for additional information are provided on each document.

The City’s various commissions are an interesting and active way to get involved in City government. The commissions discuss important matters in great detail and make recommendations to the City Council. They work closely with City staff on projects large and small that have a great impact on residents and businesses, both now and far into the future.
