Flossmoor’s Citizen Police Academy gives residents closer look at law enforcement

At a time when the law enforcement profession often finds itself the target of public criticism, it’s possible for police officers and the residents they serve to respectfully discuss how and why police do what they do.

This is evident in Flossmoor, where the nine-year-old Citizen Police Academy has 20 residents meeting each week with police officers. Participants get an inside look at how a police department works and learn about the challenges faced by its officers.
