What is Law Enforcement Exploring?

    Exploring is a worksite-based program that enables young people to learn first-hand some of the duties and responsibilities of members of the law enforcement community.  Explorers will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of career opportunities within law enforcement, will develop maturity and responsibility, gain self confidence, grow relationships within the community and HAVE FUN!!!

Who is eligible for the program?

    The West Windsor Explorers post will be open to residents of West Windsor Township who meet the age eligibility requirements and who are of sound moral character.  In addition, applicants must meet post requirements regarding school performance and post attendance to maintain their status as an Explorer.  A small number of applicants who are residents of towns adjacent to West Windsor may also be considered for admission.

What does it cost?

    The Law Enforcement Explorers program is administered through the Boy Scouts of America/Learning for Life.  The size of the BSA and the depth of their resources helps keep the costs down, but participants are required to pay a small fee for annual membership to Learning for Life.  In addition, Explorers are responsible for purchasing a uniform.  The WWPD provides members with patches and achievement ribbons (medals), along with adult advisors for guidance.

    As the Explorers begin to plan events, such as trips and competitions with other posts, costs incurred will be offset by fund raisers set up and run by the Explorers.
