What are Police Explorers?
Police Explorers are young men and women part of an organization which allows them to receive career orientation and experience a program for individuals that might be interested in a career in law enforcement or a related field in the criminal justice system. Our mission is to offer young adults a personal awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, competition, and other activities. Additionally, the program promotes personal growth through character development, respect for the rule of law, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism. Our Police Explorers are sponsored by our Dallas ISD Police Department, community partners, and fundraising efforts.
Police Explorers groups have been in existence since 1959 and are well established and highly respected programs that have served as a platform from which countless young adults have launched a successful career with local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Many Chiefs of Police, Sheriffs, and heads of other types of law enforcement agencies credit their participation in police explorers groups with providing them the foundation for a successful career.
The purpose is to:
- Build Individual Character
- Develop Leadership Skills
- Develop Leadership Potential
- Gain Appreciation for Community Service
- Develop Good Citizenship
