What is the Mission of the Explorers Program?
The mission of the Seattle Police Explorers is to bridge the gap between youth and police by educating and involving them in police operations and to interest them in Law Enforcement.
What do Explorers Do?
The Seattle Police Explorers Post conducts a variety of programs and projects featuring safety, training, and community/public service. Training provided to Explorers includes topics such as Introduction to Law Enforcement, Patrol Procedures, Domestic Complaints, Fingerprinting, Search and Arrest Procedures, Note Taking and Study Habits, and Crowd Control Procedures. Seattle Police Explorers also have many opportunities to apply the training they receive during monthly meetings. For example, members volunteer at community events doing security work, directing traffic, fingerprinting small children, helping with Crime Prevention Programs, as well as working at various summer community events. Currently, Seattle Police Explorers average more than 4,500 hours of community service annually.
Who is Eligible to Join Explorers?
To join Seattle Police Explorers, you must be between the ages of 14 and 21; you must be registered as a full time student with a grade point average of 2.5 or above; you have not been convicted of a felony or serious misdemeanor; and you can successfully pass a minimum background check and an oral interview.
What are the Benefits of joining Explorers?
Being an Explorer offers many opportunities to learn valuable leadership and life skills, make new friends, interact with the public and most of all, have fun! In addition, Exploring can further each Explorer’s education, encourage the Explorer’s participation in a rewarding and productive service activity, and enhance the Explorer’s preparation for future roles as citizen and community members. Besides gaining a working knowledge of police work, the participants have the opportunity to give of themselves to their community.
Why should I support the Seattle Police Explorers?
The Seattle Police Explorers are young adults who wish to make a difference in the community they call home, Seattle. Last year, the Seattle Police Explorers provided over 4500 hours of community service to various organizations and community events.

Support Seattle’s Future Leaders

The Seattle Police Explorers are a group of 30 dedicated young adults who take pride in serving their community while learning valuable lessons in leadership. The Explorers attend monthly sessions to build leadership skills, learn about law enforcement, and what it takes to be a strong member of society.

Seattle Police Explorers have many opportunities to apply the training they receive during monthly meetings. Members volunteer at community events doing security work, directing traffic, fingerprinting small children, helping with Crime Prevention Programs, as well as working at various summer community events. Currently, Seattle Police Explorers average more than 4,500 hours of community service annually!

The Seattle Explorers are funded solely through grant support from the Seattle Police Foundation. Their dedication and service to the community as well as their opportunity to grow into future leaders would not be possible without the generosity of people who believe in that a safe city is the result of strong partnerships between the police and those they protect.

Investing in the Seattle Explorers Post is an investment in the leaders of tomorrow. Many of them will make up the next generation of Seattle Police officers. All of them will be stronger citizens and leaders in their community as a result of their experience in the Seattle Explorers Post. An investment in them is an investment in Seattle’s future!
