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.


The Hemet Police Explorer Program will be opening for new applicants during the month of February, 2015. We will be hosting a “Police Explorer, Open House” on Wednesday Feb. 4th 2015. We will be providing information about the Hemet Police Explorer Program, activities, expectations, requirements, and the selection process.
