Oswego Junior Public Safety Academy
The Oswego Police and Fire Departments host two separate sessions of the Oswego Junior Public Safety Academy in the summer. Both sessions are Monday to Friday, 8:00am – 12:00pm. The Junior Public Safety Academy is offered free of charge to all District 308 Junior High School students. Oswego Junior Public Safety Academy Recruits/Cadets will be exposed to several different aspects of the Police and Fire profession, with a focus on the "why" rather than the "how". Some of the topics covered will include:
- Traffic Stops
- Car accident & crime scene investigation
- Patrolling the streets
- Water flow and fire extinguishment
- K-9 demonstration
- Building searches
All topics of discussion will incorporate positive decision-making skills, with a focus on developing positive moral character. An emphasis is placed on each child's role in maintaining the quality of our community. All graduates will receive a Junior Public Safety Academy T-Shirt and Diploma.
Applications are available in the lobby of the Oswego Law Enforcement Center and available online for download. Please contact the School Resource Officer of the Oswego Police Department with any questions at 630-551-7300. The application must be turned into the Oswego Police Department by the due date.
