NEW Explorer Post Offered in South County
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:
