Police and Fire Citizen Academies
The Lombard Police and Fire Departments are now accepting registration for the fall classes of their citizen academies.
Citizen Police Academy - The program provides a free opportunity for citizens to meet members of the Lombard Police force, while gaining a hands-on experience of police work. Classes will be taught by Lombard officers and cover topics including traffic stops, firearm training, search and seizure laws, defensive tactics training, police dog protocols and training, as well as other hands-on instruction. The free classes will take place Tuesday nights, 7 to 9:30 p.m., over a ten-week period, beginning September 7, 2021.
Citizen’s Fire Academy - The Lombard Fire Department invites Lombard citizens or people working in Lombard, aged 18 and older, to participate in its first Citizen’s Fire Academy, beginning September 8. The program will be limited to 10 participants and we will meet for 5 consecutive Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The academy provides an understanding of how the fire department responds to fire and medical emergencies and will provide participants with practical fire and life safety tips they can use at home.
