The purpose of Law Enforcement Exploring is to provide young adults who may be interested in a career in law enforcement with a competition, service and practical experiences. Character development, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism are integral components of the overall program. Through their involvement in the program, Explorers develop an awareness of the purpose, mission and objectives of law enforcement agencies.
Law Enforcement Exploring is open to young adults ages 14, and graduated from the eighth grade, through 20, or age 15 through 20 years.

||Must not have a prior conviction for a criminal offense or serious traffic offense.
||Must have and maintain a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average in high school or college to remain in the program.
