Do you know someone age 14-20 who has an interest in a law enforcement career? The Mesa County Sheriff's Office Explorer Program is a unit that introduces youth to the world of law enforcement. Members of the unit observe deputies, criminal investigators, administrative personnel, 911 dispatchers, agency volunteers, and records personnel, in the performance of their duties for the agency.

This program includes high school internships and provides members an opportunity to participate and assist with special projects and community events. 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 Program meets an average of twice a month for training and project assignments.

If you are interested in the program, please contact any of the following adviser(s):
