CJC students attend Citizens Police Academy
Students from Loyola's Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology participated in the Chicago Police Department's Citizen Policy Academy. The students are members of the Alpha Phi Sigma national criminal justice honor society. The Citizen’s Police Academy is a course conducted by the CAPS Project Office and the Education and Training Division of the Chicago Police Department. It provides a hands-on training program in a friendly atmosphere and is open to all Chicago residents and workers. The course is run by the Chicago Police Department and closely follows the actual training that police officers receive. The goal of the program is to build a closer bond between CPD and residents.
