Chandler Police Explorers
The Explorer program is specifically designed for young men and women ages 14 to 20 who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement. Explorers receive training in many aspects of law enforcement from simple fingerprinting to major case preparation. Training is just a small part of the Explorer program. Explorers also provide service to both the community and the Chandler Police Department through community service projects such as McGruff the Crime Dog, fingerprinting children and registering and conducting safety inspections of bicycles. During civic events like the Chandler Ostrich Festival, Explorers assist in locating lost children and providing security.
Chandler Explorers work hand in hand with officers, dispatchers and clerical personnel during ride-alongs with officers and while working at the police department. In addition to the law enforcement training, Explorers receive the opportunity to obtain skills in a business environment while communicating with professionals on a one-on-one basis. Chandler Explorers can train with the department’s bicycle team and once certified, they become members of the Explorer Bicycle Team.
