2020 Citizens Academy

The Worthington Division of Police would like to invite any Worthington resident or employee within the city to participate in our 2019 Citizen’s Police Academy. However, we also encourage citizens who do not fall within the above categories and have an interest in law enforcement, to apply. Participants will get the opportunity to 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 will be taught by certified sworn officers and will also provide real life scenarios requiring split decision making efforts. Please join us for a fun and educational experience.

The Academy would be held at the Worthington Police Department, 6555 Worthington-Galena Road one night a week from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm for an nine-week period of basic police instruction. The dates for the academy are January 22, 29, February 5, 12, 19, 26 and March 4, 11, 18, 2020. There is no cost to the student to attend the academy. Casual attire is recommended.
