To become a Police Explorer, applicants
must attend an Explorer Academy, which teaches the basic
skills utilized by Explorers throughout their Explorer
experience. The Explorer Program focuses on team
building skills and unity, while teaching these young
men and women to work together for one common goal.
The Explorer Academy is a discipline
Academy that focuses on physical conditioning, reading,
writing and comprehension skills, as well as
interpersonal communications. The Explorer training also
includes technical training utilized by everyday Police
Officers. Explorer Advisors and Explorer Drill
Instructors staff the Explorer Academy.
Once an Explorer Cadet completes the
Explorer Academy, they become Pelham Police Explorers.
Police Explorers provide a valuable service to the
community by assisting in traffic related duties,
fingerprinting of children for "Kid print" programs,
Color Guard details for community functions and
Administrative service to the Police Department.
Explorers also compete in and attend regional and local
Explorer Competitions and Fun Days. These competitions
challenge Explorers in team activities and also in
individual physical competition events.
To become a Police Explorer, one must
complete an Explorer Application and return the
application to the Police Department. Police Explorer
Cadets will be introduced into the Explorer Program and
attend monthly meetings, while being assigned to a
Senior Explorer to assist them throughout their Academy
