The Port Hueneme Police Explorer Post # 9988 provides an opportunity youths age 14-21 to experience firsthand what it takes to get started in a challenging law enforcement career. Both programs are affiliated with the Boys Scouts of America. Exploring provides the law enforcement profession an opportunity to further an investment in its own future through constructive relationships with young adults contemplating a career in the field of criminal justice.
Our Explorers develop an awareness of the purpose, mission and objectives of a career in law enforcement and receive hands-on training in various aspects of police work. Character development, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism are integral components of the overall program. Mandatory meetings are scheduled twice a month whereby they regularly train in the following areas: city geography, radio codes, traffic stops, DUI, handcuffing techniques, building searches and traffic control. Explorers also use this time to sign up for community events and police department details such as children fingerprinting, festivals, traffic control and drunk-driving checkpoints.
Port Hueneme Explorer Post # 9988 continues to be an exceptional link to the youth of our community. Explorers are commonly deployed in a myriad of details which include: Hueneme Beach Car Show, Hueneme Beach Festival, and the Port of Hueneme Banana Festival,. The Explorers assist at crime prevention details, fingerprinting details, and community outreach.
Explorer Post members participate in ride-alongs which enable the Police Explorer to observe a police officer as they perform their duties and gain valuable insight into handling a variety of situations.
