Do you want to be a police officer when you grow up?

Are you a high school student? Are you interested in law enforcement? Then there is a meeting you won’t want to miss.

The Michigan State Police and the Explorers Post 2610 will hold an informational meeting on October 6, at 6:30 p.m. at the Rockford Sportsman Club, 11115 Northland Drive, Rockford, to discuss the Explorer program for teens. Both parents and students are encouraged to attend.

Explorers are a group of young men and women (high school students) who want to learn about law enforcement and what it takes to be a state trooper. They meet weekly from October through April, and are mentored by MSP Troopers. Hands on learning includes Patrol defensive tactics, firearms, evidence collection, first aid, building searches, and more. Explorers also may be certified in community emergency response (C.E.R.T.) and may be utilized in a real emergency.

Being involved in the Explorers program, community service, and other police-related activities gives job-seekers an advantage when applying for a competitive police career.

For more info contact Trooper Roberto Anaya Jr., or Trooper Bruce Cojeen at the Michigan State Police Rockford Post, (616) 866-4411.
