Miramar Police Explorers Have Fun While Learning The Ways of “The Force”

Police Exploring is a Learning for Life organization of the Boy Scouts of America. Open to young men and women. Its purpose is to build character, citizen training, and fitness. Another aspect of Police Exploring is to educate and involve youth in police operations. 

Students learn how law enforcement functions in their community and what the day-to-day life of a Police Officer is like. Involvement in the Police Exploring program establishes an awareness of the complexities of police service and is a wonderful way for kids to become involved.


Police Explorers are involved in training sessions weekly. These sessions familiarize members with all aspects of law enforcement, including patrol procedures, traffic stops, arrest procedures, traffic, and criminal law, criminal investigations, traffic crash investigations, and firearms safety. Training is reinforced during annual local and state competitions attended by the Miramar Police Explorers.


The City of Miramar and community organizations call upon the Police Explorers to assist with traffic direction and parking control at events. Police Explorers are not used in assignments requiring police authority but to assist the community and police department under the direction and supervision of police department employees. The program brings the explorers into direct contact with members of the Police Department.

In recent years, the Miramar Police Department has hired several police officers who received their first exposure to law enforcement through the explorer program.

The Miramar Police Explorer is a program open to motivated and service-oriented young men and women (ages 13 to 21) who have an interest in the law enforcement field. To learn more about The Miramar Police Explorers, visit https://miramarpd.org/464/Police-Explorers or call 954-602-4351.
