Worthington Police Citizens Academy

Worthington Police Citizens Academy classes are temporarily on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More information will be provided when classes are safe to resume.

The Worthington Division of Police invites any Worthington resident or employee within the city to participate in the Worthington Police Citizens Academy. Participants will see aspects of what it is like to be a law enforcement officer and gather an understanding of the necessary tools and information needed to perform the job. The course is taught by certified sworn officers and provides real-life scenarios requiring split decision making efforts. Please join us for a fun and educational experience.

The Academy is held at the Worthington Police Department, 6555 Worthington-Galena Road one night a week from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm for a nine-week period of basic police instruction. Future dates will be determined when it is safe to gather in person again. There is no cost to the student to attend the academy. Casual attire is recommended.
