DeKalb County Sheriff's Department
Sheriff's Citizens Academy

Since 1996 approximately 565 individuals from all walks of life have graduated from the Sheriff’s Citizens Police Academy. Instructors for the academy include deputies from the Sheriff’s Office, as well as individuals from other agencies. The goal of the academy is to give citizens a realistic view of the criminal justice system, as well to enable deputies and other instructors to receive feedback from citizens.


Academy topics cover several areas of the Sheriff’s Office and Criminal Justice System, and include arrest procedures, criminal law, investigations, domestic violence, juvenile law, telecommunications, the corrections division, traffic stops, D.U.I. enforcement, and mock trials. Many of these topics include optional hands on involvement by members of the academy. The Academy meets on Thursday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the DeKalb County Legislative Center, 200 N. Main Street, in Sycamore.
