Would you like to know more about crime scene processing or how the Fire Department gets people out of a vehicle after a crash? Are you interested in learning more about Emergency Response in our community? Through the efforts of Plainfield Police Chief John Konopek and Plainfield Fire Chief David Riddle, residents living in and around the Village of Plainfield and the Plainfield Fire Protection District will have the opportunity to explore these topics and others by attending the ten sessions of the Plainfield Citizen’s Police & Fire Academy, which is scheduled for Summer 2018.

Citizens are invited this ten (10) week program held on consecutive Thursday nights from 7:00pm to 9:00pm beginning June 7th, 2018, and ending with a graduation ceremony on August 30th, 2018. (Due to hectic summer schedules mandatory attendance is not required.) The classes are free of charge and conducted at various locations in Village of Plainfield. The classes are taught by personnel from the Plainfield Police, Fire and Ambulance Departments and the curriculum has been designed to be informative as well as beneficial for those attending. Sessions include both lecture and hands-on instructions.

Chief Konopek and Chief Riddle are encouraging citizens to enroll in this program. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 18th, 2018 by 5:00pm. We have twenty-five spots available for this class so get your application in as soon as possible.
