District Four Auxilary and Explorers
The Auxilary and Explorer Programs are volunteer programs designed for those interested in Law Enforcement. The Auxilary Program is for individuals over the age of 18, whereas the Explorer Program is for individuals that are 14-18 years of age.
A program like these dates back to 1960, and was revamped in 1986. This modern approach incorperates a cooperative effort between law enforcement officers and civilian volunteers.
