Admission Procedures for Part Time Hired Officers


The part-time academy is for officers who have been hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency.  If you have not been hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency, please see the Intern information.  The part-time academy is primarily a web based course, but meets approximately every other Saturday and Sunday for nine months, in order to facilitate certain practical training that cannot be conducted on-line.  Attendance at these Saturday sessions is required.
To attend the Southwestern Illinois Part Time Police Academy, you must meet the following criteria:
  • Be hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency.
  • Please call the Academy office at (618) 222-5396 and make a reservation for the next part time academy session.
