Interest in Law Enforcement
Police Explorer Posts are part of the Boy Scouts of America. Open to young people ages 14 to 21, Explorers offer an opportunity for youth interested in helping their community or young people interested in law enforcement as a career.
Officers in the police department serve as Explorer advisors. They work with Explorers to teach basic law enforcement concepts and techniques. Officers also serve as mentors.
The Explorers take part in an annual state competition where they compete for trophies in categories such as crime prevention, emergency first aid, domestic abuse intervention and pistol shoots.
