Explorer Post 49
The Flemington Police Explorer Post is open to anyone from the ages of 15 through 20 that has an interest in a Law Enforcement career.
The Explorer Post provides educational training programs for young adults on the purpose, mission, and objectives of law enforcement. The program provides career orientation experiences, leadership opportunities and community service activities. The primary goals of the program are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens of their communities and the nation.
The Explorer Post currently consists of twenty Police Explorers. They meet about once a month, depending on the officer’s schedules and availability. When the Post meets they will do anything from some classroom training to simulated motor vehicle stops. When holidays approach, the Police Explorer Post is also utilized for traffic control and crowd safety. Because of the exposure to the community during large community events every police explorer is trained in Basic First Aid which includes CPR/AED/Oxygen.
Being a Police Explorer will provide the following benefits:
- Improved self-confidence
- Leadership experience and social network development
- Fun and Exciting “hands-on” career experiences
- Community service opportunities
- College & Career Readiness preparation
- Team building
Yearly fees for the Flemington Police Explorer Post are set at $60 a year. This cost covers your insurance through the Boyscouts of America and The Borough of Flemington. There is also a uniform cost, which is set through the Flemington Department Store. The uniform is yours to keep. The only thing that is provided by the Police Department is the Explorer Post Patch.
