Law Enforcement Explorer Post #4444
The South Whitehall Police Department is proud to announce the formation of Law Enforcement Explorer Post 4444. The South Whitehall Police, with assistance from the Upper Macungie Police and the Parkland School District, have established the Explorer Post for young adults interested in a career in law enforcement. Explorer Post 4444 meets on the second Thursday of each month in the public meeting room at South Whitehall Township. In addition to monthly meetings, the Explorers will serve at various special events throughout the year.
This specialty youth career oriented program is endorsed by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the National Sheriff’s Association. More than 2,800 police and sheriff’s departments have organized explorer posts specializing in law enforcement. These posts can provide assistance in crime prevention programs and traffic control, and as aides to patrol officers. The explorers have the benefit of seeing first hand what exactly the law enforcement profession entails and whether or not they would like to pursue this as their chosen profession.
Law Enforcement Exploring is a program of the Boy Scouts of America. Through the Police Department Explorer Post, young people between ages 14 and 21 learn the role of law enforcement in the community. Explorers learn police-oriented skills and share other activities. Through their training they are able to provide services to the Department, such as searches, traffic details, security for public events and other non-enforcement type activities.
The objectives of the South Whitehall Police Department Explorer’s Post are to educate interested youths in methods and objectives of law enforcement, to encourage Explorer participation in rewarding and productive services activity and to provide substance abuse prevention education.
If you are interested in becoming an Explorer, please contact the Department at 610-398-0337 or Sergeant George Hummel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
