Explorer Program Post 640

The Montebello Unified School District Police Explorer Program was established in 2009. It operates as a "Learning for Life" program out of the District's Police Department. The purpose of the Explorer program is to provide special training to the youth that are preparing themselves for a career in law enforcement or public service.
These are the following goals for the Explorer Program:
  1. To recruit qualified young men and women and prepare them for future careers in law enforcement or public service.
  2. To assist them in becoming better citizens in their community, while developing a positive relationship between the police and the youth.
  3. Preparing the young people physically for a challenging career.
  4. To provide a forum, in which young people can provide non-hazardous community service.
