Law Enforcement Exploring

Exploring is the young adult career education program of Learning for Life for both young men and women who are 15 through 20 years of age, or are at least 14 years of age and graduates of the eighth grade. Law Enforcement Exploring is a youth development program centered on law enforcement careers. The Grand Forks Police Department is proud to sponsor and support Grand Forks Regional Law Enforcement Explorer Post #2038.

Members of Post #2038 will learn many different duties, responsibilities, and skills required of law enforcement from officers belonging to a variety of local agencies, and will participate in a variety of activities to demonstrate and practice those learned skills. In addition, members will become involved in the local community, and have an opportunity to develop leadership skills.

Participation in Law Enforcement Exploring has long been held in high esteem by law enforcement agencies when considering potential police officer applicants. It is the goal of all involved in supporting this post that the participating members be given every opportunity to maximize their development in the field of law enforcement. We consider ourselves to be “building the foundation for the next generation”.

Grand Forks Law Enforcement Explorer Post #2038 generally meets on every other Tuesday night, from 7:00 pm to approximately 9:00 pm, usually in either the basement classroom of the Grand Forks Police Department, or the Grand Forks Public Safety Center. Meeting topics are set by post members, and may include: use of force concepts and skills; patrol activities; special enforcement teams; introductions to local, state and federal agencies; and many more.
