Course topics will cover criminal investigations, traffic enforcement, crime-scene processing, criminal law, use of force and driving under the influence. In addition, participants will be able to experience simulated traffic stops and simulated firearms training exercises.

The 10 classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays. The program is free to those who live, work or own property in North Aurora. Applications may be picked up at the North Aurora Police Department lobby from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays or can be downloaded at northaurora.org/forms.aspx.
