When a CPA session is in progress we will usually meet every Thursday night for ten weeks. Classes typically will run from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the Police Department, 8820 Brookfield Avenue. Completion of the CPA does not grant individuals police powers but will provide an informative overview of the fundamentals of police operations.

Anyone interested in participating in the CPA can obtain an application, at the police department during regular business hours (8:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m) or visit the Village website www.brookfieldil.gov and download an application which must be returned to the police department in person. There is no cost for participation. A routine background check will be conducted on all applicants. Additionally, a waiver of liability must be signed by each participant.
