The Police Explorers Program is a volunteer program sponsored by MDSPD and governed by the rules of the Learning for Life Organization. Our program is designed to provide high-school age youngsters, ages 14 to 18, and a minimum of a 2.0 GPA, with the opportunity to learn about a career in law enforcement. Following an extensive training program, held every summer, police explorers gain insight into police work through first-hand experience, assisting police professionals in a variety of departmental and community activities. Police explorers are non-sworn, unarmed civilian volunteers with no arrest or enforcement powers.
MDSPD Police Explorers are exposed to several aspects of the law enforcement profession to include the importance of giving back through the involvement of community service.
The MDSPolice Explorer Program is an integral part of the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department, and is operated out of the Community Outreach Unit.
Currently their are three Explorer Posts in MDSPD, and are hosted at High Schools throughout the District.
Explorer Post #115, hosted at Barbara Goleman Senior High
Explorer Post #210, hosted at Law Enforcement Memorial High
Explorer Post #315, hosted at Miami Southridge Senior High
