Explorer Program Empowers Youth for Community Safety

Post Date:07/05/2016 1:13 PM
The City of Coachella believes that its residents are the eyes and ears of the community. This means that being informed and aware goes a long way towards a safe and secure city. The Explorer Program, a division of Learning for Life, allows participants to receive law enforcement related training and volunteer with the department. Explorers will be able to participate in non-contact law enforcement activities, compete with other Explorers, and complete physical training and recreation activities.

Training with the Explorers Program covers a wide range of law enforcement that is applicable to daily life. Topics include but aren’t limited to first aid, traffic control, firearm safety, and crime prevention. The program is available to participants aged between 14-21 years old who maintain at least a “C” grade average. Explorers will need to also participate in an oral interview as well as complete a six-month probation. For more information on requirements and how to apply for the program, please visit  http://coachella.org/departments/police-department/explorer-program.
