Kauai Police Explorer Post

Explorer Logo

The Explorer Program is for career-oriented young adults aged 14 through 20. Members are referred to as "Explorer" and, while the program is part of the Boy Scouts of America, the Explorer program is instinctively different from scouting. Explorer is a co-educational, young-adult program developed and supervised by local community organizations, businesses and individuals providing an opportunity for young adults to explore a particular career field.

This program is designed to educate and involve young men and women in police operations and to interest them in law enforcement functions whether they enter the law enforcement field or not. As an Explorer, young adults have the opportunity to assist the Kauai Police Department. Explorers can broaden their understanding and firsthand knowledge of the challenges and job skills that make up their community's police service. In addition to gaining a working knowledge of police work, the participants have the opportunity to give of themselves to their community. Although the Police Explorers Program is law enforcement oriented, Explorers are volunteers and do not serve as police employees, sworn or civilian.
