Participants interacted with many Des Plaines Police officers throughout the 12-week course, which culminated in the graduation ceremony on Dec. 4.

The event was held in the city hall council chambers. Each participant received a certificate from Des Plaines Police Chief Bill Kushner.

"The academy provides an opportunity for citizens to get an understanding of the Des Plaines Police Department and its role in the community. Many of our graduates gave testimony at our graduation event as to how valuable this program was to them," Johnson said.
