Law Enforcement Exploring
EXPLORING - the young-adult division of the BSA
Exploring is an avenue for the adventurous, a vehicle for the curious, and a really good time for youth who are starting out in life's most exciting time -- growing up and reaching toward the world around them. Exploring was developed with the concept that youth have a definite interest and a genuine need for accurate career information.
Today, there are more than 33,000 young men and women participating in Law Enforcement Explorer Programs in over 1,500 Law Enforcement Posts organized by local law enforcement agencies. The International Association of Chiefs of Police, The National Sheriffs Association, and the Exploring Division of the Boy Scouts of America promote the organization of Law enforcement Explorer Posts to provide opportunities for young adults to explore law enforcement careers, the criminal justice system, and to promote character development and citizenship training among America's youth.
The Collierville Police Department has had an explorer post since 1987. An Explorer Post IS a volunteer organization for promising young adults, ages 15-20, who are interested in exploring law enforcement as a career. During the coming year, as a Collierville Police Explorer, you will have the opportunity to work special assignments, work with all divisions of the Collierville Police Department, and visit other law enforcement agencies and criminal justice systems. This opportunity to work with the Collierville Police Department will help you get first hand insight into a potential career in law enforcement.

- Must be between the age of 14 and 20
- Must have good moral character
- Must not have been convicted of any crime
- Must maintain passing grades in all school subjects
