For young adults seeking a career in law enforcement, the Explorer Program might be just the ticket.
The California Highway Patrol’s Explorer Program is designed for young men and women, 15 to 21 years of age, allowing them to develop the skills and knowledge needed to serve the people of California through discipline and a commitment to serving their community.
Explorers assist the CHP both in office and out in the field. The experience they obtain here will be directly applicable to a future in law enforcement, while building relationships — with other Explorers, in the community they serve and within the CHP.
Explorers receive physical fitness training, medical training, organizational, and clerical training. As an Explorer, you’ll attend Community Service events, staff DUI Checkpoints, participate in Ride-alongs in the field and compete in Explorer Competitions.
For questions about the Explorer Program, speak with a Recruiter by calling CHP headquarters, (916) 843-3275,or by contacting the Quincy Area CHP, 86 Main St., in Quincy, 283-1100.
