Explorer Post - 910
Explorers Duties & Eligibility Requirements

It's the goal of the Hemet Police Explorer Program to assist young people interested in learning about law enforcement. Young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20 learn the importance of teamwork, community service, developing leadership skills, physical fitness, and ethical methods of problem solving while having fun in a law enforcement environment.

To remain in the program, Explorers must successfully complete an Explorer Academy (which includes a physical fitness test), maintain a 2.5 grade point average as well as make a commitment to attend weekly meetings and community events. Hemet Police Explorers have the opportunity to volunteer their time working in the police station and can qualify to ride with on-duty police officers; observing calls for service, assisting with traffic control, writing reports, fingerprint children, and much more.

Leadership for the program is provided by qualified Explorers and Police Officer Advisors. The Explorer Post is maintained through (Explorer-paid) monthly dues and fund-raising activities in the community. In the past few years our Explorers have been participants in many activities including the National Law Enforcement Explorer Conference and the Explorer Competition (EXCON) in Las Vegas. Many explorers go on to careers in the law enforcement field. The Hemet Police Department currently employs several former Police Explorers.

Interested applicants first attend three consecutive meetings as an observer. They will then be given a background packet to complete and be scheduled for an interview. Upon completion of a background check and successful interview, the applicant can then be fully accepted into the program.

Meetings are generally held weekly, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Please wear long pants, closed toed shoes, and no revealing or offensive clothing. Introduce yourself to any one of the explorers and they will direct you as to what to do. 

Meetings are currently held at Tahquitz High School, located at, 4425 Titan Trail, Hemet, CA 92545. If this sounds like the place for you, come join us as a Hemet Police Explorer.
