introduce to the Explorers the various components of law enforcement including
patrol and correctional responsibilities.
Some of these components are correctional responsibilities and
opportunities, basic handcuffing and searching, felony stops, and domestic
violence response; along with more advanced training opportunities like active
shooter response and building searches.
Training sessions with experienced Explorer Advisors and additional officers
provide the Explorers insight into law enforcement duties responsibilities and
expectations the members of the Sheriff's Office must carry out on duty and off.
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, providing assistance in Oakland County
community where needed, and representing the Sheriff’s Office in a professional
and respectful manner.
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.
