of getting young people interested in the law enforcement field
and at the same time, improve communications between the Union City
Police Department and our youth.
Post members learn about law enforcement by direct participation.
After receiving the necessary training & certification, Explorers are allowed
to ride on patrol with the police officers and see first hand
what law enforcement is all about.
