The primary mission of the Sheriff’s Explorer Scout Program is to educate and mentor youth and provide in-depth firsthand experience in the field of Law Enforcement. The program is intended to interest youth in possible Law Enforcement careers, and to build mutual understanding. Through involvement, this program will establish an awareness of the complexities of law enforcement services. This program is intended for the benefit of youth from age 14 through 20.

The explorer program shall serve as a potential recruitment tool for future men and women in Law Enforcement and as a community relations effort between the Sheriff’s Department, the youth and the community as a whole. The program will be utilized as a service group within the community and, by its nature, will have potential use as supplemental manpower to the Sheriff’s Department.

The program is designed to develop and uphold the basic objectives of the explorer division of the Boy Scouts of America/Learning for Life through Law Enforcement to explorers in the areas of character building, leadership development, and appreciation for community services and good citizenship.
