Do you know someone age 14-20 who has an interest in a law enforcement career? The Mesa County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post #321 is a unit that introduces youth to the world of law enforcement. Members of the unit must commit to 124 hours per year in which they observe deputies, criminal investigators, administrative personnel, 911 dispatchers, VAP volunteers, and records personnel in the performance of their duties.
This program includes high school internships and provides members an opportunity to participate and assist with projects. These activities provide an opportunity for youth to learn valuable skills and interact within the criminal justice community to gain a realistic picture of what a career in law enforcement entails.
The Explorer Post meets an average of twice a month for training and project assignments.
