Sheriff’s Department Explorer Program
The Explorer program, a part of the Boy Scouts of America, allows youth to see firsthand how law enforcement works through a boot camp and classroom atmosphere. The program grooms future law enforcement officers, requiring the students to meet daily for the first two weeks and then three days a week.
