The Federal Way Police Department is looking for a new crop of explorers.
Explorer scouts need to be between 15 and 21 years old. The program offers youth a taste of law enforcement to see if they’d be interested in it as a career choice.
Explorer scouts get training and exposure to law enforcement-related activities throughout the year. They go to a weeklong, overnight camp for training during school vacation. The group meets at 6 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month at the Federal Way police station.
The Federal Way program is limited to 20 teens. Applicants should be of good character, have no criminal background, have reliable transportation and be able to volunteer 12 hours a month. Applicants also should have at least a 2.5 GPA and be enrolled at a high school or in an equivalent program.
Contact officer Curtis Tucker of the Federal Way Police Department at (253) 835–6737 or visit the website.
