The Modesto Police Department Explorer Post #219
A Great Opportunity for Young Adults
Modesto Police Department’s Explorer Post #219 is an invaluable experience for young adults,
ages 16-21 years old, who are interested in a law enforcement career. Explorers are involved
in community activities that prepare them for the future while learning effective communication
skills and the basics of law enforcement and leadership. They also gain incredible relationships
with people they look up to and may even work with in the future. Modesto Police Explorers
participated in many activities throughout 2007, including: providing security at national holiday
parades, the Riverbank Wine and Cheese Festival, and X-Fest.
In addition, the Explorers participated
in scenarios with community police academies, and by working with different units throughout the police
department, such as the S.W.A.T. Team and Reserve Officers, received valuable training experience. The
Explorer Post had over 200 Beanie Babies donated to them by a caring citizen. In turn, the Explorer
Post proudly donated a majority of the Beanie Babies to Stanislaus County Child & Family Services to be
given to children who are abused, neglected, and taken out of their homes. It is through experiences like
these that the Modesto Police Department Explorer Post #219 will continue the tradition of law enforcement,
following the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics for life.
