AKRON POLICE LAW ENFORCEMENT EXPLORERS
The Akron Police Department Explorers Post is comprised of youth ages 14 - 20 that are interested in careers in law enforcement. The objectives of the post are to educate interested youths in methods and objectives of law enforcement, to encourage Explorer participation in rewarding and productive service activities and to provide substance abuse prevention education.
The post holds regular meetings where law enforcement ideals and techniques are demonstrated and discussed. The post also allows observation of field activity of police officers by means of a special Explorer Ride-Along Program.

Volunteerism also plays a big role in the program. Explorers have participated in community events such as downtown festivals, the Soap Box Derby and the Bridgestone Invitational.
