If you are a high school or college student between the ages of 15 and 20 years old, the Arvada Police Department Explorer Post offers you a unique opportunity to experience the career field of law enforcement. The Explorer Program includes meetings, workshops, trips, riding with officers, and plenty of community service. Police procedures such as patrol, investigations, communications, first aid, and fingerprinting are just a part of the training program. Arvada Police Explorers generally meet once a week at the police department. The Explorers have attended several national conferences and leadership training academies. They also assist the Police Department with community events such as the annual Harvest Festival, teen dances, and various fund-raising activities. Members of the explorer's Post can apply for scholarships to help offset college costs through the W. Michael Northey Scholarship Fund. If you are interested in more information about the Arvada Police Explorers or obtaining an application, contact Commander Mark Nazaryk at 720-898-6820 or submit a service request.
