LAS VEGAS --
Now through Dec. 12, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Explorer program is accepting applications for new members.
This career-based program exposes young adults to the realities of a career in law enforcement. Explorers see exactly what it takes to be an officer on the streets, how to process crime scenes and how to take 911 emergency calls.
Explorer posts are located at each of the eight LVMPD Area Commands, the Crime Scene Investigations Section, the Clark County Detention Center and the Communications Bureau.
The LVMPD Explorer Program is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America’s Learning for Life program which was developed to help build good moral character, promote good citizenship and develop personal and mental fitness.
To participate in the program a candidate must be between the ages of 16 and 20, be of good moral character, have no felony convictions or lengthy criminal history, must pass a police background investigation and must be motivated and willing to volunteer time in our community.
Instructions to complete the application are available at www.LVMPDExplorers.com
. The online application will close Dec. 12.
For more information about the LVMPD Explorer Program please contact Officer Michael Rodriguez via email at M12717R@LVMPD.com
