Glen Ellyn Police Department

Junior Police Academy

The Glen Ellyn Police Department is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Junior Police Academy this coming summer! 

The five day Academy will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Monday, June 25 through Friday June 29.  The Academy will be held in the Community Room at the Glen Ellyn Police Department, Willowbrook Wildlife Haven, the DuPage County Court House (10:15am to noon on this day) and the Homeland Security Building (College of DuPage). Students must provide their own transportation to and from these locations.  Topics covered in the Academy include:  Police Tactics, Evidence Collection, defensive tactics, animal awareness and Specialty Units.

Participants should be enrolled in a school within the Glen Ellyn School District, entering the 6th grade for the 2018-2019 school year and be in good standing with their school as well as the community.  The applicant must list a reference from a teacher, school staff member or other non-family member. 

The goal of the Academy is to give students an overview of the Glen Ellyn Police Department and the community in a positive and meaningful way.  It is not to train students as cadets or police officers.  

Registration will close on June 11, with a final student selection expected to be June 13. Any questions should be directed to Community Education Officer Joe Nemchock at jnemchock@glenellyn.org
