What are the Explorers?

Law Enforcement Career Exploring is open to young men and women ages 14 (and completed the 8th grade) through 20 years old with an interest in learning more about careers in the field of Law Enforcement.

Law Enforcement Exploring provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission, and objectives of law enforcement. The program provides career orientation experiences, leadership opportunities, and community service activities. The primary goals of the program are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens of their communities and the nation.

Police Officers are the Explorer Advisors and assist in weekly instruction and training.  Explorers dedicate themselves to community service and assist with special events such as El Tour de Tucson, Arizona Distance Classic, Holiday Parade and the Town’s Fourth of July Celebration.  Additionally they participate with Color Guard duties, provide campus patrols during football games and assist with traffic control during graduations.

Most people don’t start learning their jobs until the day they start to work while Explorers are starting now. By the time an Explorers is ready to begin their career, they already understand the job they are seeking.

The Explorer Program is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America.  Police in your neighborhood have teamed up with the Boy Scouts to bring Exploring to all interested people.
