Las Vegas, NV - August 17, 2017- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Law Enforcement Explorer Program is now forming its fall class!
The program offers young adults a unique view of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, competition and other activities. Additionally, the program promotes personal growth through character development, respect for the rule of law, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism. Explorers see exactly what it takes to be an officer on the streets, how to process crime scenes, and how to take 911 emergency calls.
Now in its 39th year, the Explorer Program has helped hundreds of young adults secure employment in the criminal justice field both locally and abroad.
Candidates must be between the ages of 16 and 20 years, 6 months, be of good moral character, have no felony convictions or lengthy criminal history, must pass a thorough police background investigation and must be motivated and willing to volunteer time in our community.
