Police Explorers Program

Police Explorers Program

The Columbiana Police Department’s Explorer Program is sponsored by the Learning for Life division of the Boy Scouts of America.  The program is for young men and women ages 14-21 who are interested in law enforcement and or Emergency Medical Services as a possible career.

Explorers are mentored by a team of dedicated Columbiana Police Officers who emphasize self-confidence, a strong work ethic, and self-discipline to the participants.  The Explorer Program provides training in a variety of law enforcement, and emergency medical topics, participation in local and national skill & knowledge competitions and involvement in community service projects.  We strive for an inclusive group of young men & women who not only believe in themselves but also in giving back to their community.
