The Elmhurst Police Explorers program orginated in 1982 and is sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. Over the past decade the Explorers have seen over 150+ members participate in the program. We currently have approximately 20 members that are comprised of both male and female High School and College students from the towns and cities surrounding the Elmhurst area.

The Explorer Program is designed to provide opportunities for youths between the ages of 14-21 years of age to learn and participate in careers in Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement. This program provides excellent opportunities for young adults to gain knowledge about all aspects of law enforcement and be able to work closely with an outstanding local law enforcement agency.

Elmhurst Police Explorers place a large emphasis on youth leadership and responsibility. Our members will retain and carry with them a confidence and professionalism that will be beneficial in any future endeavor. In addition, members participate in police training, service to their community, explorer competitions, character development, physical fitness, and learn good citizenship.
