Do you know someone between 14 and 20 years of age interested in becoming a police officer? They may want to consider joining the Bedford Police Explorer program, which will accept new members in September. The program provides a first-hand look at a career in law enforcement from working police officers through discussions, training, and more.

The Explorers meet Thursday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. and study topics related to real police work such as DWI investigations, domestic disturbances, crime scene investigations, hostage negotiations, building searches, etc. They also physically train as a group and learn defensive tactics. Members also participate in local Explorer competitions against other Explorer groups and are required to complete a set amount of community service hours each year.

Membership opens once a year and interested individuals must complete an interest card and then attend the Explorer Open House on Thursday, September 7, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bedford Police Department, 2121 L. Don Dodson Dr. with their parent/guardian. After attending the Open House, potential new members must complete an application, as well as pass a background check and interview process. The program is a non-scouting subsidiary of the Boys Scouts of America, and membership is $60 annually. Participants must live in Hurst, Euless, Bedford, or the surrounding area.
