Volunteer with your Police Department
Volunteers, an integral part of the Police Department, provide a variety of services.
The Bloomington Police Citizens' Academy is offered every fall.
We have found the Citizen’s Police Academy to be especially effective in enhancing communication between officers and citizens through the sharing of knowledge and information of police practices.
The 2014 academy will take place on Thursday nights for ten weeks from September 18 - November 20, 2014. There is no cost to attend, but due to the high demand for the class, you are expected to commit to all 10 weeks. We hope you'll consider signing up for the fall academy.
The Department has a Chaplain Corps to serve people in emergencies and strengthen the service rendered by the police to the community. The chaplains are available on call to provide a counseling service for human relations situations.
