The Teen Police Academy is an opportunity for teens to learn about the responsibilities of a police officer, tactics for defense, how an Emergency Response Team operates, firearms safety, gang awareness and much more.
There’s an online application on the Springfield Police Department’s website.
Applications may also be picked up at the Police Station Front Desk (800 E.
Monroe). If you have any questions about this program, you can call 217-788-8397 or email email@example.com
The SPD’s Facebook page has some excellent videos from their August 2018 Junior Police Academy.
