May 06, 2016 09:57AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

The St. Charles Police Department will host its fourth annual Youth Police Academy this summer. The class will run from 10am to 3pm June 13-17, and is open to kids ages 13-16. The academy showcases careers in police work, and also will encourage team work and grow self-esteem through different activities.

Several topics will be covered, including steps to becoming a police officer, personal safety, Internet safety, bullying, crime scene evidence collection and more. Tours of the police and fire departments will be included. Thanks to funding from the St. Charles Youth Commission, participants will be certified in CPR by the St. Charles Fire Department free of charge. The class also will spend a day at the Kane County Judicial Center for classes led by state’s attorneys and judges.

The class will be limited to the first 25 registrants who must be a resident of St. Charles, and/or attend a CUSD 303 school. Preference will be given to residents within the city limits. Registration packets can be picked up at the St. Charles Police Department, both high schools and Wredling, Thompson and Haines middle schools main offices, and returned to those locations, too. Registration deadline is June 3. For more information, contact Crime Prevention Officer Bill Tynan at btynan@stcharlesil.gov or 630-443-3847.
