Police Explorer Scouts
Explorer Post 437 is comprised of 14 members who represent a multi-cultural group of boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 20. These youth are members of the Boy Scouts of America and are interested in community service and a career in law enforcement. Advisers are part of the Orange County Explorer Basic Academy Training Cadre.
Police Explorer Post 437 annually averages 3,000 hours of service to our community and Orange County.
Police explorers attend a high-stress four day Explorer Academy and conduct crowd and traffic control for special events throughout Orange County. They assist local police academies as role players and compete in police tactic competitions.
During down-time, the Police Explorers participate in ride-alongs and assist officers on patrol. Several Kennedy High School students currently take advantage of this challenging program that develops leadership, discipline, physical fitness, integrity, and dedication to public service.
