 Who can become a Police Explorer?

The Meriden Police Explorer program is for young adults between the ages of 14 and 21 years who are interested in Law Enforcement.  The program prepares these young adults to mature and become responsible, caring adults.  It is also an EXCELLENT opportunity to learn and experience Law Enforcement as a career choice.  Explorers form unique relationships with trained and certified Police instructors as they are exposed to the many facets of Law Enforcement including the duties and responsibilities of a Police Officer, forensic science, investigation, self-defense, firearms and weaponry.  Explorers are invited to participate in our ride-along program and are allowed to ride with patrol officers and respond to police calls, participating in the normal routines of community policing. Explorers also learn proper radio operating procedures, how to write police logs and reports, and how to interact with different individuals in the community. Explorers may also assist officers in a variety of situations including directing traffic at accident scenes and routine investigations.
