Facts about the Union City Police Department's Exploring Program:

Explorer Post #2052 was founded in November, 1995, by Police Chief Joe Garner . The Explorer Post was developed as a means 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.

Explorer 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.

Explorer Post Activities:

Explorers participate in many fun and interesting police and civic activities. Explorers help with department programs such as our National Night Out events. The most popular activity is the Explorer Ride-Along Program.

New Explorers learn the basics of law enforcement in the classroom by attending the Bi-Monthly Training Sessions sponsored by the Union City Police Department. Explorers are taught everything from Traffic Control to Firearms Safety & Qualification.

If you think you might be interested in Exploring, attend one of our meetings.
