Worthington Police Citizens Academy

The 2023 session was completed in March. More information about the 2024 session will be released in late 2023.

The Worthington Division of Police invites any Worthington resident or employee within the city to participate in the Worthington Police Citizens Academy. If you do not live or work in Worthington, but still have an interest in law enforcement, we invite you to apply as well!  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. 

There is no cost to the student to attend the academy. For more information, please refer to the application link below.
