Police Auxiliary

The Lake Worth Police Auxiliary is a non-profit organization that supports the mission of the Lake Worth Police Department.


The police auxiliary is an all-volunteer organization made up of men and women from the greater Lake Worth area who have a genuine desire to serve the community of Lake Worth and support the men and women of the Lake Worth Police Department. Auxiliary members routinely assist with public safety outreach campaigns, security at local events and neighborhood patrols. The police auxiliary also supports community outreach projects like the annual senior citizens thanksgiving dinner, National Night Out, and many more.


Citizen's Police Academy

The police auxiliary also facilitates a citizen’s police academy for community members who are interested in learning more about the interworking’s of the Lake Worth Police Department. Upon graduation, members can patrol neighborhoods, retail areas and serve as the non-commissioned “eyes and ears” of the police department. 


The Citizen's Police Academy is an eleven-week program designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Lake Worth Police Department.  The instruction is comprehensive consisting of lectures, demonstrations, and tours.  Each week separate areas of the department are covered. 

Instruction Includes:  Community Policing, Laws of Arrest, Search and Seizure, Criminal Investigations, Patrol Operations, Use of Force Training, Communications, Crime Scene Processing, and Firearms Safety/Training.

Our goal is to educate the public about the Lake Worth Police Department and to increase rapport between citizens and police officers.
