ExplorersThe Sheriff's Office is proud to host Explorer Post 2649 which is comprised of young aspiring adults from ages 16 to 20 who are interested in a career in law enforcement. The program is designed to introduce to the Explorers the various components of law enforcement and correctional responsibilities including basic firearm safety and marine safety.

Training sessions with experienced officers provide the Explorers insight into law enforcement duties and responsibilities the members of the Sheriff's Office must carry out.

Other aspects of the program Explorers are responsible for include raising money to supplement the program, participating in competitions throughout the state with other Explorer Posts, and providing assistance in the community where needed.

The Explorers have assisted with child fingerprinting programs, the promotion of boating safety and representation of the Sheriff's Office at various events. The Sheriff's Office is extremely proud of this group of young, dedicated men and women.
