Explorer Program - Post #9051
Explorer patch.jpg
The Manitowoc Police Explorer Program is for anyone between 9th grade and college, between 14 and 21 years old, who wants to "explore" what being a police officer is all about.  As a Manitowoc Police Explorer, you will receive top notch instruction and hands on training from a team of Manitowoc Police Officers. 

Not only will you gain a learning and training advantage over other police recruits when you finally get to police recruit school, you will have opportunities to put your training to the test against other police department Explorer Posts in annual competitions around the state.

In addition to the tremendous training you will receive, you will be expected to assist the police department with various tasks at many different events going on in the city throughout the year.  For this you will receive community service hours toward your graduation requirements and gain standing experience within our Explorer Post.

The Manitowoc Police Department reserves the right to conduct background checks of potential Explorers and to deny membership into the Explorer Program based on excessive school disciplinary records or any negative contacts with police.  A $25 fee is required to join the Explorer Post, as membership capacity in the Explorer Program will be limited.

Explorer uniforms will be provided by the Manitowoc Police Department and are required to be worn at every training meeting and city event in which Explorers are assisting
