High school students interested in learning the ropes of the Vallejo Police Department may now apply for the department’s Explorer Program.
The program is available to young adults 14 to 20 years old who have completed the 8th grade at time of appointment.
Applicants must live in Solano County, have a 2.0 GPA average in High School and be able to contribute at least 10 hours of volunteer time to the program per month.
During weekly meetings, Explorer Program participants can expect to participate in police training exercises, “ride-alongs” with patrol officers, live DUI checkpoints, holiday details, parades, local fundraisers, community events and statewide police explorer competitions.
