The CHPD Police Explorer Program is designed to educate and involve youth in police operations, interest them in law enforcement careers, enhance community outreach efforts, and raise awareness of law enforcement’s role in society. Our Explorers receive instruction in all phases of law enforcement including criminal law, traffic law, criminal investigation, crime prevention, crime scene investigation, traffic control, accident investigation, dispatch, records, and other related fields. CHPD’s Police Explorer program affords participants the opportunity to engage in our Ride-Along Program and work side by side with officers and other police department personnel in both group activities, and special events.  Explorers develop physical and emotional strength, sound character, solid values, and a sense of purpose.
