Sheriff’s office accepting applications for program

Becoming a Police Explorer allows young adults ages 14 to 20 an inside look at law enforcement, and to discover what policing is really like.

Grundy County Sheriff Kevin Callahan’s office will accept applications through this week for the position of “Sheriff’s Police Explorer.” The explorer positions are open to young men and women between the ages 14-20 who have an interest in law enforcement as a profession, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office

Explorers have a hands-on, close-up chance to learn how the law works. Law enforcement exploring provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission and objectives of law enforcement.

The program provides career orientation, leadership opportunities and community service activities. Its goals are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens.

The Explorer Program is the young adult version of the Boy Scouts of America. While the program is part of BSA, the explorer program is different than scouting. The explorer program is co-educational, developed and supervised by local community organizations, and provides members with opportunities to explore particular career fields.

Applications are available at the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office, 111 E. Illinois Ave. Morris. For information, call 815-941-3122.
