2017 Citizens Academy

The Worthington Division of Police will be conducting a Citizens Police Academy for 2017. We cordially invite any Worthington community resident or Worthington City employee to enroll in this program. However, we also encourage citizens who do not fall in either category and have an interest in law enforcement, to apply. The Academy will be held at the Worthington Police Department, 6555 Worthington-Galena Road one night a week from January 25, February 1, 8, 15, 22, March 1, 8, 15, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm for an eight-week period of basic police instruction.

Participants will get the opportunity to experience 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 sworn officers and will also provide real life scenarios requiring split decision making efforts. Please join us for a fun and educational experience.

If your application is accepted, you will receive a letter early January 2017 with information about the upcoming Citizen's Academy.
