Explorer PostThe Escondido Police Explorer Post is on the look out for motivated young men and women ready to meet the challenges of law enforcement and public service.

The Escondido Police Explorer Post gives young men and women (ages 16 to 19) a first-hand look at the law enforcement career field. Explorers receive hands-on training in areas such as traffic control, enforcement stops, interviewing witnesses, search and rescue, and conducting investigations into serious crimes. Explorers also participate in special events such as assisting at sobriety checkpoints, security at sporting events, and alcohol enforcement details. During monthly ride-alongs, Explorers use the police radio, assist with paper work, and directly participate in most calls for service.

Most importantly, the young men and women participating in the Escondido Police Department Explorer Post serve their community in a vital and meaningful way. Community outreach programs include mentoring grade school students, assisting at various community events, and being everyday good will ambassadors for the Police Department. The life skills developed through Exploring shape the leaders of tomorrow.
