Department Programs

Citizen's Academy

The purpose of the Citizen's Academy is to provide the citizens of Danville with a better understanding of the capabilities of the Danville Police Department and to facilitate a partnership with the community.

The Danville Police Department believes the Citizens Academy will increase the community's awareness and understanding of law enforcement capabilities (and limitations) thereby promoting more realistic expectations. It is also our belief that through a positive and informative medium, a strong partnership will develop between members of the community and the Police Department to make Danville a safe environment in which to live and work.

The Citizen's Academy is not intended for those desiring to become police officers. However, anyone interested in a career in law enforcement would benefit from this generalized view of policing.

Prescription Drug Drop Off

Unused or expired medication can pose a risk to children, family members, and the environment. It can also be misused or abused, leading to serious complications, overdose, even death.

You can dispose of the unused or expired medication safely, easily, confidentially, and for free in a Drug Collection Kiosk at the Danville Police Department. The kiosk is open to all residents, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm with no questions asked. This is a safe, effective, and sustainable way to dispose of prescription substances.
