The Program

Exploring is a career education program for young men and women who are at least 14 (and completed the 8th grade) and not yet 21 years old through Learning for Life, a division of the Boy Scouts of America. Law Enforcement Exploring provides career oriented experiences; leadership opportunities and community service activities centered on law enforcement careers. Law Enforcement Exploring is a hands-on career discovery program where explorers will:

  • Learn the duties and procedures of LHCPD officers. This includes being taught how to conduct a car stop, search building, handcuff suspects, patrol activities, firearms training, traffic law, etc.
  • Understand how different parts of the LHCPD function together. To do this, Explorers are taught how the city’s detention facility is operated and how SWAT, Communications, Detective Division, DPS Crime Lab etc., is used in conjunction with patrol. This normally includes giving   Explorers a chance to tour various facilities.
  • Compete with different Explorer Posts from police departments across the United States. Each year Explorers are given the chance to travel to different cities to attend law Enforcement Exploring Conferences and academies as well as to compete with other Explorers in law enforcement-related scenarios.
  • Develop leadership skills, self-confidence, maturity and discipline. Explorers are given the chance to advance in rank by testing for the position of corporal, sergeant, and With each rank attained, the Explorers are challenged by being put in a leadership role within the program. Explorers also must maintain a uniform and pass inspection by the advisers as well as other police personnel.
  • Participate in community activities. As part of their membership requirements, Explorers are called upon by departments and community organizations to help facilitate events and gatherings such as parades, special events, and other community functions.
