SUSD Police Department Launches Law Enforcement Explorer Program

The Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) Police Department is excited to announce the start of the district’s very first Law Enforcement Explorer Program!

Law Enforcement Exploring is a volunteer career education program for young men and women, ages 14-20, interested in law enforcement. In partnership with the Stockton Unified School District Police Department, Explorers will receive training and education in various aspects of police work, such as criminal law, crime scene investigation, first aid, traffic enforcement, patrol procedures, and more!

Explorers will have first-hand opportunities to experience police work through a structured ride-along program and participate in regular meetings consisting of a mix of classroom training and hands-on application of learned skills. Explorers will also have opportunities to provide community services during public events such as traffic control, search and rescue, and natural disaster response. Explorers may perform volunteer services at the department and participate as role-players in training exercises. Sworn Police Officers will supervise Explorers at all events. The Explorer Post will also organize social activities not related to law enforcement for fun and team development.

If you are interested in joining the SUSD Police Department’s Law Enforcement Explorer Program, please attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, from 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. to learn more. The meeting will be held at our Police Department located at 640 North San Joaquin Street in Stockton, CA.  Any questions regarding the Program can be directed to Sergeant Rob Young or Lieutenant Richard Barries at 209-933-7085.
