Explorers program allows youth to work with law enforcement

Youth interested in law enforcement have a chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at the role of an officer.

Law Enforcement Exploring is a program for youth between the ages of 13 and 21 to work closely with local officers. They get to experience the operations of law enforcement through training, competitions, and other activities. Along with police skills, the youth learn teamwork, leadership, and personal skills as well.

“I’m a really shy person, and I really was when I joined this post, so it’s really helped me to kind of come out of my shell, learn how to talk to people and helping in the community is probably the most rewarding thing about this post,” says Emily McCabe, Explorers Patrol Lieutenant.

Explorer meetings are held twice a month, depending on schedules, at the Minot Police Department. Youth can join the program at any time when they meet the requirements which include maintaining a 2.0 GPA in school and having no felony or misdemeanor convictions.
