Citizens Police Academy

The Oswego Police Department would like to invite you to attend our Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA). The CPA is a unique chance to see and experience the inside workings of your police department. Various Oswego Police Officers will introduce you to their world by sharing their areas of expertise and interest. The CPA runs for thirteen weeks from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM. Areas of discussion include:

  • Patrol Tactics
  • Traffic Enforcement
  • Narcotics Investigations
  • Street Gangs
  • Court Procedures
  • Search and Rescue
  • Accident Reconstruction
  • Crime Scene Investigation (CSI)
  • Weather Spotting
  • SRT (SWAT Team)
  • Dispatching
  • Hands on Practicals

The CPA is designed for anyone who is interested in helping to keep this community safe and crime free. Our goal is to foster better cooperation and communication between the Oswego Police and the citizen’s we are sworn to protect by showing you why we do things the way we do. We solicit citizen input as well.

The CPA is open to any Village resident or people who maintain property or a business in the Village. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. There is no fee and class size is limited to 20 participants. An application may be picked up at the Oswego Police Headquarters or completed online.

The next academy class will begin just as soon as we have a full class, so enroll now. Classes will run for 13 weeks and shall be held on Wednesdays at the Oswego Police Headquarters located at 3355 Woolley Rd. All classes will be held in the Community Room in the front glass classroom of the Police Headquarters.

Questions may be directed to Officer Stephen Bailey at (630) 551-7364 or Deputy Chief Brad Delphey at (630) 551-7300.
