Our Citizens Police Academy (CPA) provides an informative overview of the fundamentals of police operations and the various specialty units within the department for anyone 18 years of age and older, or 55 years of age and older for the Senior Citizens Police Academy (SCPA). The format includes lecture-style presentations by EPD officers and staff, as well as some hands-on experiences. Both the CPA and SCPA are free. If you are interested in learning more about the Elgin police department, the academies are a great way to get started. Visit our website
