The Franklin Police Department organized our Law Enforcement Explorer Post in 1997 to give young men and women in our community the opportunity to get personally involved in public service. This program strives to continually improve the relationships between youth, the community, and law enforcement, while acquainting teens with the goals and objectives of the Department. The Explorer Program is geared towards community youth interested in a law enforcement career.
What Explorers Do
Explorers meet regularly to receive instruction from experienced Franklin Police Officers. Explorers provide assistance with traffic control and patrolling at special events. They assist officers with community relations and crime prevention programs, and ride with sworn police officers who are patrolling our City.
What Kind of Instruction Do Explorers Receive?
Explorers learn about topics like patrol operations, law, criminal investigations, traffic control, first aid / CPR, self-defense, firearms safety, and the history of law enforcement.
The Explorer Program is a non-profit program administered by Police Officers with the Franklin Police Department and is affiliated with the Learning for Life Law Enforcement Explorer Program.
