Police Explorers Program
Gain insight into fun and exciting careers in the field of law enforcement.
The Police Explorers Program is a worksite-based program for young men and women who have completed the eighth grade and are between 14 and 21 years old. The Police Explorers Program is governed by Learning for Life, which is a division of the Boy Scouts of America. The Dunwoody Police Department’s Explorer Post (#702) was established in 2009, with a $2,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Dunwoody.
The Police Explorers Program helps participants gain insight into careers in the field of law enforcement in a learning environment with lots of fun-filled, hands-on activities that promote the growth and development. The Dunwoody Explorers meet weekly to train in different aspects of law enforcement and volunteer at community special events and functions.
Participants in the Dunwoody Police Explorers Program are also eligible to compete for Learning for Life and Boy Scouts of America scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,000. The community service hours also make Dunwoody Police Explorers eligible for other scholarships and nationally recognized awards.
If you are a Police Explorer you can also consider applying for the Georgia Law Enforcement Explorer Academy.
