Today, young adults have a great opportunity to participate in a program that can make their career decision easier and help them prepare for their future.
Through the Gilbert Police Department's gracious acceptance of the Police Explorer Program and their continued assistance, the Gilbert Police Explorers are exemplifying that Gilbert is a "Community of Excellence" and hope to make the youth of today not only better cops but better people.
The Gilbert Police Explorer Post is currently recruiting young men and women who are interested in a law enforcement career. On top of all the hours of service to the community and the department, the Explorers also receive police training.
Benefits in participating in the Explorer Program
- The youth develop better police relations and communication skills
- The community is given a better outlook on the youth.
Every Tuesday, the Gilbert Police Explorers receive training from 6:00pm to approximately 8:00pm.
This training covers nearly all aspects of police work ranging from traffic stops to domestic violence and also develops personal skills such as discipline, respect, and confidence. One of the ways that all of this training is put to the test, is by Explorer competitions. These competitions utilize different aspects of their training as well as team work. Through the years, the Gilbert Police Explorer Post #912 has consistently proven their level of excellence at various competitions always striving for perfection.
