Police Explorers is an organization that gives high school students a unique opportunity to participate in a range of activities, from community events to police training sessions. Meetings are once a week, where the Explorers are introduced to law enforcement. Qualified Explorers are offered ride-alongs, where they ride with Post Advisors and provide support to the Police Department’s Field Operations. These Police Explorers also have the chance to participate in additional training sessions and learn more in depth about particular subjects.
