City Government 101

Champaign City Government 101 is an opportunity for citizens to boost their civic engagement capacity and become an active participant in local government and the community.

This 12-night course introduces participants to a new City department each night, including: Police, City Manager’s Office, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technologies, Legal, Planning and Development, Public Works, Neighborhood Services, METCAD 9-1-1, Fire, and Library.

In the Champaign Police Department’s session, citizens are introduced to the daily functions of Police, including an overview of the Department’s divisions, leadership, and services.  Program highlights include a mini-tour of the Police Department, introduction of command staff, an outline of the Department’s major initiatives, and a police simulator demonstration.

CCG 101 is organized annually through the City’s Neighborhood Services Department.  To learn more or to register for the next Academy visit the Champaign City Government 101 Academy webpage.
