The Law Enforcement Explorer program is a co-ed division of the Boy Scouts of America Explorer Program. Manteca Police Post #805 has up to 20 explorers between the ages of 14 – 20 who are interested in a career in Law Enforcement. Explorers work with the department in community events and with officers in the department. Police Explorers can be seen riding patrol with officer, working DUI checkpoints, and community events. The Explorer Program made its debut in Manteca in 1967 and has been a vital part of the community ever since. Over the course of three decades the Explorer Program has been ranked as one of the best in the Nation.
Explorers compete in Law Enforcement Explorer Competitions. Our explorers have routinely taken several 1st and 2nd place trophies in these competitions. The explorer program maintains a 1947 Chevy Fleetmaster vintage police car.
Explorers are required to maintain a 2.0 grade average and have a good discipline record at school. Explorers are required to pass a background check that is consistent with background checks for police officers.
