Police Explorer Program

The Arvada Police Department Explorer Post is an interactive educational program for young adults interested in law enforcement. Participants will learn the basic skills of what it will take to become a police officer.

After being accepted to the post, the new explorer will learn officer safety, written and verbal de-escalation skills, criminal law, crime scene investigation, and more. 

This is a uniformed volunteer position with the police department. Explorers will learn teamwork, professionalism, and responsibility. 

Police Explorers are required to:

  1. Be between the ages of  14 -21. 
  2. Attend two meetings every month on Thursday nights.
  3. Complete monthly ride-a-longs with department officers. 
  4. Attend a state-wide competition once a year.
