Palatine Police Citizen Police Academy

The 2019 spring session of the academy concluded on Wednesday, May 8. It consisted of 13 Village of Palatine residents who participated in the 8 week academy which met on Wednesday nights at the Palatine Police Headquarters. Class participants were given a "behind the scenes" look at the inner workings of the Palatine Police Department. The goal of the Citizen Police Academy is to educate citizens regarding the law enforcement profession and to strive to work cooperatively with the residents of Palatine to make the community a safe place to live and work. Pictured with the Graduates are Chief of Police Alan Stoeckel and Sergeant Angelo Calanca. Congratulations Graduates!

Click It or Ticket May 10-28

As summer kicks off and travel increases, the Palatine Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. The seat-belt enforcement campaign will take place May 10 through 28, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year. Click It or Ticket enforces the proper use of seat-belts and car-seats to keep all motorist safe.

"Our officers see first hand the tragedy when people do not buckle up." said the Palatine Police. "It's such a simple and effective way to protect yourself while traveling. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to stay safe when traveling."

In Illinois, nearly 95% of motorists use seat belts, but a disproportionate number of fatalities still involve unbelted motorists and passengers. Seat belt use decreases even more for back seat passengers and for people traveling at night.

Palatine Palatine Police will be taking a no-excuses approach, writing citations day and night. Motorists and passengers not wearing their seat belt will be ticketed, and those caught driving impaired will be arrested.
“Please help us spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed simply because they failed to buckle up,” said the Palatine Police. “Seat belts save lives, and every vehicle occupant—front seat and back, child and adult—needs to remember to buckle up, every trip, every time.” For more information on the Click It or Ticket mobilization, visit
