The LVMPD Law Enforcement Explorer Program is a volunteer organization which exposes young adults to a career in law enforcement by matching their interests in four specific areas: Crime Scene Investigation, Corrections, Dispatch, and Police. In addition to the training they receive, the LVMPD Explorer Program also aims to develop and refine qualities such as maturity, responsibility, character, civic duty, and personal fitness. 

Comprised of young males and females ages 16-20, the program is led by youth members, under the supervision and guidance of adult advisors who are employed by LVMPD as commissioned officers and civilians. Law Enforcement Explorers receive training that is similar to what sworn and civilian law enforcement personnel receive through weekly meetings. They are also afforded the rare opportunity to observe law enforcement in action through ride alongs and sit alongs in various facets of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. 


Become an LVMPD Explorer and you'll have the opportunity to challenge yourself in ways you never thought possible. You'll also see first hand what it's like to have a career in law enforcement with a nationally recognized police agency. Sounds interesting? Take the first step and find out what it takes to join.
