WRPD Explorer Recruitment Open House

Law Enforcement Explorer

The Wheat Ridge Police Department (WRPD) is holding an Open House for the Law Enforcement Explorer Scout Program.

February 28, 2019, from 5- 7 p.m. at WRPD, 7550 W. 29th Ave.

The Explorer Scout program consists of youth ages 14.5 - 20 years old who are interested in learning about law enforcement as a career. The Explorer program offers area teens the chance to get real-world police knowledge and leadership experience while providing service to the community.

At the Open House, Explorers will learn about:
Criminal law/search and seizure
Arrest control
Traffic stops
Active harmer response
Traffic crash investigation
Crime scene investigations
First aid/CPR
Building searches
And more!

The Explorers participate in an academy designed to provide them with basic law enforcement skills. The Explorers then assist the Wheat Ridge Police Department and the community as volunteers while earning ride-a-long hours with patrol officers.

The Wheat Ridge Police Department reintroduced the Explorer Scout Program in 2013 with Post 6901 named to honor the badge number of Jack Bramble, the interim Chief of Police for the City of Wheat Ridge when the department was established. Chief Bramble was a volunteer dedicated to public service who exemplified the values that the Explorer Scouts follow today.

To apply to be an Explorer Scout come to the Open House on February 28, 5-7 p.m. or contact Sergeant Jon Pickett at 303-235-2914.
