About the Explorers
The Manchester Police Department has been committed to the Exploring program since the 1970’s. The Exploring program is a program of Learning for Life, which is an affiliate program of the Boy Scouts of America. Law Enforcement Exploring is a worksite-based program for young men and women who have completed the eighth grade and are 14 years of age, or are 15 years of age but have not yet reached their 21st birthday.
Law Enforcement Explorer posts help youth to gain insight into a variety of programs that offer hands-on career activities. For young men and women who are interested in careers in the field of law enforcement, Exploring offers experiential learning with lots of fun-filled, hands-on activities that promote the growth and development of adolescent youth.
In addition to teaching members about policing, we are a community service based group and are very active within the Manchester community. Explorers participate in state wide law enforcement based competitions against other Exploring posts, participate in the New Hampshire Police Cadet Training Academy, attend University of Exploring as well as a law enforcement seminar hosted by the NH Army National Guard.
