The Citizen Police Academy is a ten (10) week program designed to give the participants a working knowledge of the Campton Hills Police Department and police work in general.

Community Oriented Policing plays an important and vital role in reducing crime. The Campton Hills Police Department instituted the Citizen’s Police Academy to improve communication with our residents and obtain citizen input and support throughout the Village. It is hoped that our graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to issues that are affecting our community. Graduates will gain knowledge that they can implement to enhance the quality of life in their respective neighborhoods. The goal of the Citizen Police Academy is to help the residents of the Village better understand how policing is conducted in their community. It is hoped that all graduates of the Academy will get to know more about the men and women who are protecting their community and learn how they make the decisions they do while performing their duty.
Some of the topics include:

  • Overview of the Department
  • Firearms Safety
  • Domestics/Local Ordinances
  • K-9
  • Juvenile/Criminal Law
  • Accident Investigations
  • Patrol Procedures/Traffic Stops
  • Crime Scene ET
  • Cons and Scams
  • Vehicle Codes
  • Gangs/Drugs
  • DUI Practical

For additional information on the Academy, please feel free to contact Chief Dan Hoffman at 630-584-4242 or via email at

Lights Recycling

Holiday Lights
3rd Annual Recycling

Are you finding your holiday lights have lost their twinkle? Year after year we find ourselves testing bulbs and replacing fuses, and when that doesn’t work, in the garbage the lights go.

In 2015, Village of Campton Hills residents brought in 259 pounds of broken light strands for recycling; 2016, we collected 332 pounds. For our 3rd annual holiday lights recycling program, our goal is to recycle over 400 lbs of holiday lights. Please help us get the word out regarding this recycling effort to help get another recyclable commodity out of the land fills. 

Lights accepted include: Italian mini-lights, traditional lights, extension cords, rope lights, LED lights. Lights can be in working or non-working condition, from any holiday!

Please bring your lights for recycling to Village Hall during the hours of 9-4, Monday thru Friday. We will continue to collect lights into early January. We have partnered once again with Elgin Recycling.

toys for tots

 Drop off location

The Campton Hills Police Department is announcing that it is again partnering with the United States Marine Corps in the “TOYS FOR TOTS” program.  TOYS FOR TOTS mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children.  As stated on the TOYS FOR TOTS website “the primary goal of TOYS FOR TOTS is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders”.  The Campton Hills Police Department is proud to be a sponsor of this program and will be a drop off point for these toys. The residents of Campton Hills have been very generous in their giving in the past and we are hoping your generosity continues throughout this holiday season.  Anyone wishing to donate to this program may drop off unwrapped new toys by December 8, 2017 at:
