The New Rochelle Police Department is now accepting applications for their Explorer Program, a non-profit organization geared towards young men and women ages 14-20, in good academic standing, who have interests in careers in law enforcement. Explorers are exposed to all aspects of law enforcement and gain a valuable knowledge of police functions. Explorers will learn responsibility, teamwork and leadership skills and will receive hands-on training in various techniques used by law enforcement professionals including: Emergency Response Training, Traffic Stops, Search and Seizures, First Aid and CPR, Crime Scene Investigations, Child Safety and Domestic Incidents. Explorers will also participate in events held throughout the city and will assist officers with traffic control. Applications are due by August 4, 2010.
