Police Explorers

Police Explorers

The Police Explorer program provides youth with an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the police profession and participate in community service activities, improving the quality of life for all residents of Boynton Beach. The program is for young men and women who have completed the eighth grade and between the ages of 14 and 21.

Youth meet once a week and learn every aspect of law enforcement from traffic stops and building searches to handgun safety and the handling of critical incidents. Participants of the program earn community services hours to help them achieve their high school diplomas or college degrees, but more importantly, they learn how to be good citizens. The program has been around for more than 20 years and thousands of youth have participated. Many have been influenced to go into a career in law enforcement. In fact, several past participants are now officers with the Boynton Beach Police Department.

To become a Boynton Beach Police Explorer, a student must:

Be enrolled in school and have at least a "C" average

Be able to attend weekly meetings, occasional weekend functions

Participate in para-military training that includes physical activity

Not have an arrest record.
