Police Citizens Academy

The 2024 Worthington Police Citizens Academy kicks off on Wednesday, January 24th, and runs from 6pm to 9pm each week for nine consecutive Wednesdays.

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. Certified sworn officers teach the course and provide real-life scenarios requiring split decision-making efforts. Please join us for a fun and educational experience.
