Explorers will receive instruction in all areas of law enforcement including Patrol, Traffic Enforcement, K9, Investigations, Court Proceedings, Communications and Administration. They will be introduced to patrol functions, vehicle operations, radio operations and other areas specific to the function of a law enforcement officer. Explorers will also be exposed to motivational and team building exercises that emphasize physical fitness, situational awareness, problem-solving and memory.  There will be other activities including fishing, volleyball, bicycle riding, basketball, ect. The program will be a 3 week program. The program will start at 9 AM and continue until 2 PM (unless a special event is scheduled). Lunch will be provided every day for the participants.
