Lake Zurich Law Enforcement Explorer Post 2 has offered the opportunity for young people from the community to learn more about a career in law enforcement for 20 years.
Each explorer in Explorer Post 2 is required to attend monthly meetings and to respond to details to assist the community by directing traffic or performing other service-related tasks. Additionally, explorers may choose to participate in the Ride-Along Program where explorers ride with patrol officers and assist them with their daily activities.
Explorers receive training in more than 40 topics including:
Writing police reports
Use of force
Explorer Post 2 teaches leadership and responsibility while giving its members the opportunity to serve their community. Explorers assist with more than 30 special details each year including:
Main Street Classic Car Show
Fourth of July Celebration
