As a continuation of the Antioch Police Dept. canine program it is our pleasure to introduce to the public our newest working patrol dog, Hank. Hank is paired up with Officer Chad McCameron and they began working as a K9 team in April of 2016.
Hank was born on April 7, 2015 in the Czech Republic. Hank comes from a distinct heritage of working dogs and at birth displayed the characteristics and temperament of a good police work dog. Hank arrived in the United States in January of 2016 and was immediately paired with the trainers at TOPS Kennels in Grayslake Illinois with the purpose of doing K9 police work. Hank began pre-training with TOPS personnel including all aspects of routine police duties. This training includes basic and advanced obedience, narcotics detection, articles searches, tracking of human scent, building searches, aggression training, suspect apprehension and handler protection. Once the dog had a basic introduction to all areas he was paired up with Officer McCameron who was selected to be his handler.

We are now taking applications for our first Citizens Police Academy which will begin on March 21st, 2018. Meet and interact on a personal level with members of the Antioch Police Department by participating in the Citizen Police Academy. Classes are held Wednesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will run for 10 weeks. Participants will experience many facets of law enforcement with class topics that are both interesting and informative covering patrol, investigations, support services and training. The C.P.A. is a 10 week program designed to open the lines of communication between the Antioch Police Department and the community.

The Antioch Police Explorer Post is an interactive program co-sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America designed for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21.
The program teaches the basics of Law Enforcement to those interested in a future career in the Law Enforcement field and allows them to give back to the community by using some of their skills at different events in the Village such as assisting with traffic control during parades and attending Shop with a Cop.
Explorer Post Members regularly perform ride-alongs with various Officers, which further enhances their understanding of Law Enforcement. Many Law Enforcement topics are covered in the program including: traffic stops, traffic accidents, building searches, SWAT tactics, drill & ceremony, evidence collection, and control tactics.
Explorer Post meetings are held every Thursday at 7pm and further training is held on various dates throughout the year.
For further information on the Explorer Post, please contact Post Advisor Officer Garcia at 847-395-8585 or ngarcia@antiochpd.com

“Coffee with the Cop” will provide a unique opportunity for community members and officers from the Antioch Police Department to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.
