Teens and their parents are invited to learn more about Fairfax County Police Explorer programs at upcoming informational meetings to be held in September 2014. In addition to Post #1742, a new chapter begins this year that will better serve teens in the southern end of Fairfax County, Post #2252.

For teens that have ever considered careers in the challenging field of law enforcement, the Explorers are a good place to start.

Explorers serve police departments and their communities across the country and provide young people with opportunities to learn and practice skills that police officers use on a daily basis. Explorers gain experience in fingerprinting, processing crime scenes, staffing special events and helping officers spread the word about safety and crime prevention.

The informational meetings will include a variety of equipment and police personnel, including the helicopter, K-9 teams, the Dive Team, Animal Control Officers, S.W.A.T. members, and many more.

There is no need to RSVP; attend this once-a-year informational session to learn more about these exciting opportunities:
