Police Explorers consists of students interested in The Police Explorers Program sponsored by the school system and
governed by the Learning for Life Organization rules. The program is designed to provide school-age
youngsters, ages 14 to 18, and a minimum of a 2.0 GPA, with the opportunity to learn about a career in law
enforcement. Following an extensive training program, held every summer, police explorers gain insight into police
work through first-hand experience, assisting police professionals in various departmental and community
activities. Police explorers are non-sworn, unarmed civilian volunteers with no arrest or enforcement powers who
are exposed to several aspects of the law enforcement profession including the importance of giving back through
the involvement of community service.
