Police Explorer Program

Police Explorers 2011

The Police Explorer Program (Post #226) is a coordinated program between the Police Department and the Boy Scouts of America. The program encourages youth and young adults (ages 14-21) to develop an interest in law enforcement by experiencing police operations. Police agents serve as advisors to the program, providing explorers with classroom and practical training.

In the classroom, explorers learn about the various aspects of policing, including:

  • Officer safety skills
  • Community policing
  • Investigative techniques
  • Physical fitness requirements

In the field volunteers:

  • Help with community events
  • Assist with tours of the department
  • Assist with traffic control and other varied assignments
  • Explorers can participate in the Ride-Along Program
  • Explorers also enter law enforcement competitions in which participants are evaluated on officer safety skills, judgment, planning and teamwork. Explorer Post #226 has participated in local and national competitions, and it has won a variety of awards for performance and teamwork. Interested persons are asked to submit an application.
