Law Enforcement Exploring is a career-oriented volunteer program sponsored by individual law enforcement agencies. The Explorer Post provides young men and women who have an interest in law enforcement or criminal justice as a career, with a comprehensive program of training, practical experience, competition and service.
Under the leadership of dedicated adult advisors, explorers receive practical, hands-on training, observe Sheriff’s Office operations firsthand; and assist deputies in areas such as crowd and traffic control, crime prevention, and public assistance. Explorers attend regular monthly meetings at the Sheriff’s Office, where such topics as Georgia law, patrol functions, criminal investigations, CPR, and firearms safety are taught by Post advisors and other certified instructors. They also participate in ride-alongs with deputies, serving as an extra set of eyes and ears while on patrol. Explorers also have the opportunity to practice their skills during state and national competitions with other Explorer Post.
