Livingston County Sheriff’s Office accepting applications for Explorer Program
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is currently accepting applications for their Explorer program. The Explorer program is for young adults ages 14-20 who have a strong interest in Law Enforcement. The program provides an opportunity for Explorers to experience the responsibilities and functions of law enforcement first hand.
The Explorer Post meets on Sundays regularly throughout the year. They train for the annual state competition, in which, the explorers put their training and skills up against posts from around the state, competing for the Governor’s Cup. When the post is not training for competition, meetings consist of several things related to law enforcement such as K-9 and Bomb Squad Demonstrations, sitting with 911 operators, tours of the Michigan State Police Crime Lab and training facility as well as the Livingston County Jail. Explorers are required to attend the Michigan Law Enforcement Youth Advisory Committee Academy one time within their first two years of joining the post. The academy, a week-long paramilitary style boot camp provides Explorers with a taste of attending a police academy. Active Explorers are eligible to ride along with the Livingston County Sheriffs’ Office.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
· Must be between 14 to 20 years of age
· Minimum grade point average of 2.0
· Maintain appropriate school attendance and behavior
· Must have a clean criminal history and be able to pass a background check
