Law Enforcement Explorer Program

Through the Law Enforcement Explorers program, the City helps teens and young adults learn about law enforcement and careers in the field.

The program is open to people ages 14 to 20. It focuses on six areas:

  • Career
  • Service
  • Leadership
  • Social
  • Fitness
  • Outdoors
A uniformed police officer from each police station volunteers to be the on-site Post Advisor for the Explorer Program. There are nearly 4,000 Explorer posts at the New York Police Department (NYPD).
