Blaine Police Explorers Program

Explorers-300x192

The Blaine Police Explorer Post #3939 is comprised of a group of students with an interest in law enforcement careers who are uniformed and receive specialized training in multiple aspects of police work. Explorers participate in many community events, such as the 3M Open, Blaine Festival, Blaine Fireworks, Safety Camp, and other community happenings. Explorers who are active in the post, both at meetings and who volunteer at community events, have the opportunity to ride along with a police officer once a month. These ride along experiences allow Explorers to get a first-hand look at law enforcement.

In Blaine, Police Explorers must be between the ages of 14 and 21, maintain a C average or better in school, pass a criminal history background check, be willing to volunteer time for community events, and participate in weekly/biweekly training sessions. At the training sessions, explorers are trained by Blaine Police Department advisors, including City of Blaine Police Officers, CSOs and Reserves. Guest speakers are also brought in, and in the past have included the Minnesota State Patrol, Anoka County Sherriff’s Office, and other units.

Explorers are taught various police skills and test those skills annually at the three-day statewide Minnesota Law Enforcement Explorer Conference in Rochester, Minnnesota. Scenarios at the competition include Traffic Stops, Use of Force, Crime Scene Investigation, Bomb Threat Response, Emergency Field First Aid, and others. Other conference activities include academic sessions on pivotal law enforcement topics. The Explorer Post annually receives high marks at the competition.

If you are interested in learning more or would like to become a member of Police Explorer Post #3939, please contact Post Coordinator Travis Hale at 763-717-2688 or THale@BlaineMN.gov.
