The Amarillo Police Department hosts a Law Enforcement Explorer Post through the Learning for Life Corporation. The Learning for Life Corporation “offers seven programs designed to support schools and community-based organizations in their efforts to prepare youth to successfully handle the complexities of contemporary society and to enhance their self-confidence, motivation, and self-esteem.” Exploring is a Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are 14 through 20 years old. Go to www.exploring.org for more information.
The goal of the Law Enforcement Explorer program will be to connect to the young people in the Amarillo area who aspire to work in law enforcement. The program will be a continuous process where participants can progress through the program and become leaders and mentors to newer members. One of the stated goals of law enforcement career exploring is: “The program promotes personal growth through character development, respect for the rule of law, physical fitness, good citizenship, and patriotism.” This is not only good for law enforcement but is good for the community as these young people are developed into potential community leaders. Our goal is to develop future police officers and give them the inspiration and guidance they need to come to work in this profession.
The Amarillo Police Department will host an Explorer Open House on Thursday, March 1st from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. This event will be held at the Amarillo Civic Center, Hospitality Room (on the East side of the Civic Center).
