Chief Kyle Heagney is pleased to announce the Attleboro Police Department has established a Police Explorer Post. This is a new endeavor for the Attleboro Police Department.
The Police Explorer Post provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission, and objectives of law enforcement. The program provides career orientation experiences, leadership opportunities, and community service activities.
The primary goals of the program are to help young adults who are interested in a career in law enforcement develop a personal awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences and other activities. Exploring also teaches young adults important principles including good citizenship, life skills, and leadership. Police Exploring is part of the Boy Scouts of America’s Learning for Life program. Law Enforcement Exploring combines classroom training, officer ride-along in police cruisers and assisting the police department with community events.
This program is for young men and women between ages 14-20 who would like to explore the possibility of a law enforcement career. It is open to residents of Attleboro. Explorers will meet once a month and participate in other associated activities that will educate them about a police career and how law enforcement accomplishes its mission.
Lt. Jeffrey Rogers will oversee the Police Explorer Post program. Interested candidates should contact him for more information and to obtain an application to apply JRogers@attleboropolice.org Or contact him by phone at 508-222-1212 ext. 2625.
