The Nassau County Law Enforcement Exploring Program is Based on Five Areas of Emphasis:
Because Exploring is voluntary, youth are receptive to new ideas, experiences and relationships. For the Explorer, these relationships provide a connection to new ways of thinking and acting as well as a new identity as a responsible young adult.
Explorers tell us that what they learned helped them to step up and take charge in critical situations and have developed greater self-esteem. The hands-on experience in community policing and problem solving, as well as the professional training received, prepares them for successful careers in the area of Law Enforcement.
