The Two Rivers Police Explorer Post is a volunteer organization made up of young men and women ages 14-20 yrs. old who have an interest in exploring the career field of Law Enforcement. The organization is sponsored by the Two Rivers Police Department and is part of the Boy Scouts of America - Learning For Life program.
At meetings, which occur about twice a month, Explorers receive training in various police functions, and receive presentations from professionals in the criminal justice community
Explorers serve their community by donating hundreds of volunteer hours every year to community functions by serving as aides to the police department. They take part in crime prevention programs, play the role of McGruff the crime dog, run games for kids, help set up barricades and direct traffic, post signs, and assist officers at special events.
Explorers also experience tours and presentations of different law enforcement agencies such as police departments, jails, dispatch centers, courthouses, FBI, Secret Service, Crime Labs, etc.. In addition they take part in competitions against other Explorer Posts across the state.
As if all that weren't enough they also get to participate in fun events such as bowling, cookouts, movies, baseball games, and other fun events. By being an Explorer they may also earn points to participate in the police department's ride along program.
The program is an exciting way for young adults to socialize with like minded individuals and learn about a possible career field in the Criminal Justice system.
