Nine local youths are currently enrolled and started off the program with a week-long entry school designed to acclimate the Explores to the duties and responsibilities of the average police officer. Their mornings began with physical fitness and drill formation training. In addition, the Exploeres also received training in areas such as officer safety, community policing and received an American Life Saver CPR Certification.
