Citizens Police Academy

The Lake Forest Police Department's Citizens Police Academy celebrates the completion of its 23rd session with the graduation of our Fall 2017 class. We congratulate them for their energy and commitment and hope our officers were able to give them a view of the world through the “law enforcement lens”.2017_CPA_Class_Graduation

The program is designed to promote and enhance citizen understanding and awareness of the role of the Lake Forest Police Department within our community. The objective of the course is not to prepare graduates to become police officers, but instead, to instill in citizens a greater general knowledge of the many functions of LFPD.

The dates for our Spring 2018 session will be announced soon. For more information, please contact Officer Aaron Kruchko at
