Exploring enables participants to examine the law enforcement field by participating in training in law enforcement techniques and procedures through community service and ride-alongs with Police Officers. The program is intended to encourage interest in a law enforcement career while helping to build character and to foster self-confidence, self-discipline, and goal-setting. The program is staffed by Police Officers, and meetings are held bi-weekly at the Police Department.
Additional training is provided through a yearly summer academy, held for one week. Membership in the Post is contingent upon successful completion of the academy within one year of acceptance into the program.
