**We meet primarily at the Elmhurst Police Department unless otherwise specified in the Upcoming Events section. Please check in at the Front Desk upon your arrival and advise them you will be attending the Explorer meeting - they will gladly direct you to the proper location.
You may begin your road to becoming a member by attending the next upcoming meeting! New members are WELCOME at EVERY meeting. Although you will not be issued a uniform until after you have been accepted as a member; we ask that all prospective members please wear khaki pants and a collared shirt when attending our meetings.
After you have attended (3) meetings and get a good understanding of what the program is about and what we will expect of you as member; you will be allowed to submit an application for membership. That application will then be processed within 2-4 weeks by the Police Officers who are Post Advisors. The officers will conduct a background investigation to ensure that you are eligible to become an explorer.
Finally, you will be notified by an Advisor or the Explorer Captain of your acceptance into the Post. At the next meeting you will be sworn in as a member of the Elmhurst Police Explorer Post #66.
The Elmhurst Police Explorer Post #66 are involved a wide range of activities and training that range from assisting Elmhurst Police as roleplayers in their training, taking trips to Forensics Lab or Dispatch Centers, to assisting with Traffic Control at events such as Elmfest or Turkey Trot.
Please read our "About Us" Section to view some examples of the events and training we participate in.
