Geneva, IL - Geneva residents interested in learning how police officers work to keep their community safe are encouraged to register for the City’s 2019 Citizen Police Academy. The weekly classes will run from 6-9pm on Wednesday nights, January 9 through March 27. 

The program was created to give residents an overview and insight into the department along with a behind-the-scenes look at police operations. During the academy earlier this year, participants learned about the police hiring process, use of force, crime scene investigations, tech crime, traffic enforcement, crime prevention, drug education and active shooters among other topics. 

The deadline to apply for the program is Monday, December 10. The program is free, but space is limited. You must be 21 years or older and reside within the City of Geneva to apply for the Citizen Police Academy.

Applications for the academy are available on the City’s website at or at the Geneva Police Department. Completed applications can be dropped off or mailed to the Geneva Police Department, 20 Police Plaza, Geneva.

For more information, contact Police Commander, Brian Maduzia, at 630-232-4736 or via email at
