The Huntington Park Police Department’s Explorer Scout Program is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America. We currently have 22 Explorers in the Huntington Park Police Explorer Post #1028.
Join the Program
The program is open to boys and girls between the ages of 14-17 years old. To be considered for the program, you must have a good moral character, maintain acceptable grades in school, and be willing to assist members of the community at large.
If you are accepted by the police department explorer program, you will attend a five-month academy, which is conducted by the Golden West College Training Division, located in the City of Huntington Beach. The training includes laws of arrest, patrol procedures, physical fitness, self-defense, and the development of varied skills tasks explorers will need to assist members of the police department and the community. After successful completion of the Explorer Academy, explorers will have the opportunity to ride along in police vehicles with officers from the department.
Services and Duties
Some of the duties with the police department may include, crowd and traffic control, fingerprinting, searching for lost children, and assisting citizens who come into the police station. The Police Explorer Scout Program is a voluntary position; however, many have used the experience gained to assist them in becoming a part-time police cadet or a police officer.
