Hilliard Division of Police
Explorer Post 2286

Exploring is a work site-based program of Learning for Life, a subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America, for young men and women who are 14 through 20 years old, and who have completed the eighth grade. Law Enforcement Explorer posts help youth to gain insight into a variety of programs, and offer hands-on career activities for those who are interested in careers in the field of law enforcement.

Our goal at the Hilliard Police Department is to aid young men and women who feel they are interested in police work. This goal is taken very seriously; therefore the post will only accept those individuals who are serious about their future. Our post meets twice each month (second and fourth Thursday), from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the police department.  Members of our Explorer Post are also able to ride along with the patrol officer after their probationary period has been completed.

During our meetings, we focus on different types of police work, such as report writing, building searches, self-defense, and much more.  We also bring in guest speakers from other avenues of law enforcement, i.e. Secret Service, FBI, ICE, etc., to talk to the explorers about careers in their line of work.

Those interested should contact the Post Advisor for further information.
