Explorer Program





What Is Police Exploring?

The primary purpose of the Police Explorer program is to provide young adults with an interest in a law enforcement
career with some hands on experience.

Police exploring is for young adults who want to be where the action is, and to be a part of it.  If you want to discover
the world and yourself, if you believe that the world could be better than it is...you should become an Explorer!

There are opportunities for both males and females.  Many of our explorers have gone into careers in law enforcement.

understanding of the many services necessary in order to function as a public safety agency.
