Citizen Police Academy

The Orland Park Police Department annually hosts a Citizens’ Police Academy, offering an inside perspective into law enforcement within the Village of Orland Park. 

The class is limited in size and is open to adults age eighteen and older.  A criminal history review will be conducted on each registrant prior to acceptance into the Academy. 

The Academy curriculum includes the functions of the department’s Patrol and Investigations Divisions. Participants meet officers serving in the Traffic Unit, DARE Program and schools. The department’s K-9 Unit conducts a demonstration and students may participate in mock traffic stops along with other simulations. 

There is no charge to participate.  The Orland Park Police Department will be conducting another Citizens' Police Academy in the fall of 2016.

For more information, contact Officer Chuck Barth at 708/364-4736.
