ALBANY PARK — The Chicago Police Department is looking for recruits to join its Citizen Police Academy.
The nine-week course, which runs from June 4 to July 30, gives private citizens a taste of what it's like to serve and protect.
In addition to attending sessions on law enforcement practices, participants will have the opportunity to team up with officers on a ride-along and practice techniques such as searching and handcuffing a suspect.
The Citizen Police Academy will meet from 6-9 p.m. at the police academy's training facility, 1300 W. Jackson Blvd.
To apply for a slot, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, phone number and email address by end of day May 21.
