Application for Explorers

Police Exploring is a program that teaches different aspects of law enforcement to youth possibly interested in a career in police work. The Explorer Post is open to youths 14 to 20 years old and at least in the ninth grade. All Explorers must have “C” average or above and no prior arrests or pending cases (some exceptions may apply). Post #415 hires youth ages 14 – 18 years of age and still attending High School.

The Explorers in Post #415 are given similar training that Police Officers receive. Explorer Post #415 competes at various competitions throughout the state to test their skills and now attend an in-house Summer Explorer Academy for one week. Explorers are permitted to ride with police officers during their patrol shifts to learn the realities of police work.

All prospective candidates must fill out an application/background packet and submit it to the Explorer Coordinator. You will be invited to attend two meetings as a guest and an interview with the Explorer Advisors along with second interview before an Explorer panel. If you are offered a position with Explorer Post #415, you will be placed on a three month probationary status. If you pass the probationary status successfully you will be given an ‘at will’ position with the Explorer Program.

The Explorer program is not to be taken lightly. It takes time, dedication and sacrifice just like any school sport or other activity. Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. Additional events & activities take place in the evenings and on weekends.

For further information, please contact Officer Chris Peart at (925) 809-7763 or Officer Casey McNerthney at (925) 809-774. You may also download the Explorer Application.
