Explorer Program
The Boulder City Police Department is proud to announce the resurrection of the Explorer Program. The Explorer Program, chartered through Learning for Life, is for youth ages 14 through 20 who have a desire to learn more about the police profession.

Youth considering a career in law enforcement or simply looking for something to do that will, by its very design, provide structure in their life, should consider joining the Explorers.

The arduous process is nearing completion as we have recently been authorized to proceed with the program. We are nearing completion of the Charter process as well as putting the final touches on the Explorer Manual and the Department policies that will be impacted by introducing youth back into the Police Department.

Members of the Police Department will be available for questions on May 5, 2008 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, Council Chambers. We will be hosting an orientation meeting to interested youth and their parents. This gathering will encompass a review of the Explorer Program, a review of the Manual – to include outlining the expectations of the Explorers to ensure optimum opportunities for their success.

It is the mission of Learning for Life to enable young people to become responsible individuals by teaching positive character traits, career development, leadership, and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve full potential.

The five areas of emphasis outlined in the Mission Statement serve as the guiding principles of which our program will be based. As we strive to provide opportunities to build positive character traits, enhance career development, provide leadership opportunities, build life skills, and build an appreciation for added citizenship, we welcome your support. Embrace these vital members in our community as they prepare for the future and to fill our shoes as we move on to other facets of our life.

Meet police officers from throughout Southern Nevada as they race the many athletes at the 6th Annual BMX is Not a Crime Event May 9 at 6 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park.

Coffee with the Chief and I will be on May 21 at 7 p.m. at Chiarelli’s Deli.

Until next month, stay safe.
