Citizen's Police Academy


The La Grange Police Department is sponsoring an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Department. The Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) is a free program designed to educate La Grange residents and business owners about the structure and activities of their police department. The CPA is not a "training" class but is an exciting "informational" class that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the LGPD.

The Citizen’s Police Academy brings the police and the community closer together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant. The CPA program operates on the premise that informed and educated citizens will be more supportive of police officers and the department, and will be more productive within their own neighborhoods and communities.
