Police Explorers

The Law Enforcement Explorer program is designed to provide youth some hands-on experience in the areas of criminal justice and law enforcement. Explorers do not need the desire to become law enforcement officers to join. Club participation is open to young men and women in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades who have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old but have not completed the eighth grade and are not yet 15 years old. Post participation is open to youth 14 to 20 years old.  Applicants to the post must have graduated from eighth grade.  

Post participation is designed to give youth the opportunity to learn about a law enforcement career and provide hands-on experience in criminal justice and law enforcement areas.

Who can be an C.P.D. Explorer?

-You are between the ages of 10 and 21

-You are free from physical limitations that might prevent you from completing any duty assignment

-You have no felony convictions

Each week, Clewiston Police Explorers meet to participate in training sessions that are overseen by law enforcement advisors. The topics of these meetings include, but are not limited to, arrest and control, criminal law, and criminal procedure. 

Any Explorer over the age of 16 who is in good standing with the Explorer Program is eligible to ride along as an observer with an officer. This experience allows Explorers to find out first hand what police work is really like. Additionally, Clewiston Explorers provides role players many training events throughout the region.
