Explorer Post 108    Explorer Arrest Scenario    XPL Meeting    

The Roseville Police Department’s Explorer Program is a unique and challenging opportunity that allows young men and women (ages 16-20) to be an integral part of the Department’s operations while gaining exposure of what a career in law enforcement would be like. Explorers are trained in many aspects of law enforcement and have opportunities in working alongside officers who are 'in the field' patrolling the streets of Roseville.

The Mission of the Roseville Police Department Explorer Program is to develop young men and women into responsible and productive citizens through discipline and a commitment to serve their community.

To teach leadership, integrity, commitment, and responsibility to young men and women. To build good character and citizenship.
To assist the Roseville Police Department in providing services in the community especially in times of emergency.
