Senior Citizen Police Academy

We strongly believe that a positive relationship between police and the community is essential to achieve our common goals. The Senior Citizen Police Academy helps build that relationship.

The Senior Citizen Police academy is a ten-week program designed to provide a unique glimpse “behind the badge”.  The Mundelein Police Department’s Senior Citizen Police Academy provides an excellent opportunity for citizens, who live and /or work in or near the Village of Mundelein, to become familiar with the day-to-day operations of the Police Department, as well as gain a greater awareness of the daily challenges faced by its officers. 

Attendees will learn about departmental resources and programs and, more importantly, the men and women who comprise the Mundelein Police Department.  Classes will be a combination of lectures and interactive activities led by many police department divisions, with topics such as special operations, 911 communications, firearm use and safety, crime prevention, crime scene investigations, and self-defense.

Upon successful completion of the Senior Citizens Police Academy, participants attend a graduation ceremony and are awarded a certificate of attendance.  The safety and security of our community depends on the active cooperation and participation of all its citizens.  It is hoped that graduates of this program will be motivated to continue as active partners and join the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association to continue their relationship with the Mundelein Police Department.

The program is open to the residents, ages 55 and older, of the Village of Mundelein and neighboring towns.  There is no cost to attend the Senior Citizen Police Academy.

Classes are held for 10 weeks on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  Classes are held at the Del Webb Community Center 555 Grand Dominion Circle, Mundelein.  You do not need to be a member of Del Webb to attend the Senior Citizen Police Academy.
