The Wise County Sheriff’s Office will host a Law Enforcement Explorer open house and Recruitment Night on Thursday, March 30th, 2017 at 6 p.m. at the Wise County Justice Center located at 5605 Patriot Drive in Wise, VA. The open house is open to young men and women ages 16-20 as well as their parents. If you have not already picked up or submitted an application we will be handing applications out and accepting completed ones also.
Law Enforcement Exploring provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission and objectives of law enforcement. The program provides career orientation experiences, leadership opportunities and community service activities.
The primary goals of the program are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens within their communities. During the open house, potential post members will have the opportunity to observe just a sample of what they will see and experience throughout their experience with the law enforcement explorer post program. They will also have an opportunity to meet and speak with some of the Wise County Sheriff’s Office Deputies.
Agencies from federal, state and local levels coordinate the Law Enforcement Exploring programs throughout the United States. The majority of the community programs are managed by local police departments, including sheriffs, chiefs of police and state police. Nationally, over 33,000 explorers participate in Law Enforcement Exploring.
Our Law Enforcement Career Exploring post will meet on a bi-monthly basis (every 2 weeks) during the school year. For the selected applicants the first scheduled meeting will be on April 13th, 2017 at 6:00pm.
