Georgetown County Sheriff Carter Weaver invites local high school students to join Police Explorers Post 333, a new program run by the Sheriff’s Office. Students from 10th, 11th and 12th grades can get an immersive experience in law enforcement, including ride-alongs, practice with police equipment, and time with different departments, such as Forensics and the Criminal Investigative Division. Explorers get their own uniforms and can even help at local events including parades.
Joining Police Explorers Post 333 will not only give teens law enforcement experience, but also enhances life skills, citizenship and character development. The Explorer Program has been managed by the Boy Scouts since 1949 and there are thousands of posts around the country.
“I am excited for the chance to make a difference in our communities by engaging our greatest resource,” Sheriff Weaver said.
