Firestone Police Explorer Program


Firestone Police Exploring Program



The Firestone Police Exploring program is a private entity within State of Firestone that builds character for citizens that desire to enter the law enforcement career in the future. The program works alongside other agencies to provide a full hands-on learning session without actively committing to the duties of a law enforcement agent. Whether or not the individual wishes to pursue a career in law enforcement, the program will allow for citizens to experience what it is like as a law enforcement agent within this state. This document will provide the basic information for those who are interested in the explorer program.

Probationary Period

Each individual that successfully applies for the program and passes the background check will enter the probationary period. This period will ensure that the individual is committed to becoming apart of the exploring program. Additionally, the individual will have the ability to showcase their needs such that the program will deliberately assist the individual during their time as an explorer.

There is no requirement for an individual to be apart of the program aside from having a clean record within the State. It is advised for members going through POST to continue their classes to obtain their certification whilst taking advantage of the exploring program.

FPE regularly opens their Admissions to interested Citizens, Probationaries are expected to take a small course that informs them of the basics in Law Enforcement, from there they are made Explorers and begin through the program.
