Explorer Post #25

The Explorer program is an educational, volunteer program for high school and young adults, ages 14-21, with an interest in law enforcement. Once accepted into the program, Explorers attend a basic law enforcement academy in the fall or spring. Explorers also meet twice a month to learn about the law enforcement profession.

Training topics include: Traffic Control, Traffic Stops, Arrest Control, Criminal Code, Patrol Procedures, Building Searches, Crime Scene Investigation, Crisis Intervention, Report Writing, and Firearms Safety. Explorers also help with community events, crime scene searches, and special details as needed by the department.

Explorers can attend a regional conference each summer where they compete against Law Enforcement Explorers from across the country. Explorers wear a distinguishable uniform, however, they do not carry weapons and they are not law enforcement officers.

Requirements

  • Age 14-20
  • High school student or young adults
  • 2.5 GPA
  • Ability to volunteer 10 hours per month
  • Pass background investigation

If you would like additional information about the Explorer Program please contact Deputy Natasha Romero.
