Crestwood Police Department Seeks Cadets
The Crestwood Police Department is looking for people between 14 and 19 years old
that would be interested in our Police Cadet Program. The main purpose of this program is to help develop leadership and communication skills for their future. While we focus on law enforcement and public safety, we work towards teaching these youths communication, leadership, chain of command and community services. In the past some of our training has included speakers and trainers from the FBI, Illinois State Police, Cook County Sheriff’s Police, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and many others.
Our goal is to give them as much exposure as possible to a wide variety of people and operations to help them in thinking about good communications and future career possibilities. It is not necessary to specifically want to go into law enforcement . We use this as opportunity to teach them skills that will help provide them a start towards understanding what it is all about. Due to the nature of some of the things we deal with, we ask everyone to keep their activities here confidential so that we don’t violate anyone’s rights. Cadets are required to attend our meetings and trainings. We try and limit them to once a month during the school season; however we usually have additional meetings and trainings in the summer. Cadets also assist the community by providing us with park security, traffic control, and community events both in Crestwood as well as surrounding suburbs.
Applications are available at the Police Department Monday- Friday between 9-9
Crestwood Village ordinance prohibits parking on ANY village streest between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00a.m. The reason for this ordinance is so Police will be alerted to abandoned vehicles or suspicious vehicles that require investigations. This ordinance also ensures that all streets throughout the Village will be open to fire and rescue equipment in the event of an overnight emergency. This is especially necessary in areas where narrow streets can block large fire trucks. We will continue to enforce this ordinance. Thank You for your cooperation with this ordinance. The initial fine for this violation is $75.00. This is a Village wide ordinance. PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR LATE NIGHT AND OVERNIGHT GUESTS ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS AS WELL!
