Police Explorers

Police Explorers (associated with the Boy Scouts of America) is designed for males and females ages 14 to 20, who have an interest in law enforcement. Explorers train with police officers to handle scenarios including burglary, assaults, domestic disturbances, building searches and many other areas.

The program tries to help build the maturity and self-confidence of the members involved.

The Coon Rapids Police Explorer's Post competes against other explorers at the state Explorer Conference each spring in Rochester, Minnesota.
