Program Information

The Explorer Program is a fun and safe way for young people in our community, fourteen to twenty years of age, to learn about the field of law enforcement. Explorers participate in ride-alongs, traffic control, crowd control, give tours of the Police Department, and help with many other tasks and events. This program gives teens an understanding of various law enforcement careers and helps them to decide whether or not to pursue a career in law enforcement.
