The Round Rock Police Explorer Program introduces young men and women, age 14-20, to the police profession and acquaints them with the nature and complexity of law enforcement. The program encourages them to seek careers in law enforcement, while giving them a solid foundation upon which to build. The program also provides a prospective employer with an evaluation for each Explorer who seeks employment as a police officer. A well-managed Law Enforcement Explorer Post can have a positive influence on the department and the community through demonstration of many valuable contributions offered by Explorers. The Explorer program provides law enforcement an opportunity to invest in its own future through constructive relationships with young adults considering a criminal justice career.
