Join O’Fallon’s Police Explorer Post
Young men and women (ages 14 - 20) who are interested in “Exploring” a career in law enforcement are invited to attend an informational meeting of O’Fallon Police Explorer Post 2943 at 6:30pm on Monday, November 19th, in the Multi Purpose Room at O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. Candidates must be in high school (9th grade) in the 2012-2013 school year. A video and a presentation about some aspects of the program will be shown.
Police Explorers assist City staff and the Police Department by supplementing manpower during community events, such as the O’Fallon Heritage & Freedom Fest, the Fall Festival & Craft Bazaar, and O’Fallon Jammin’ outdoor concerts. In 2012, Explorer Post 2943 earned the President’s Volunteer Service Award, Gold, with 3100 hours of community service, or over twice the number needed to earn the award.
Through their service, Explorers gain opportunities to interact and become involved in the daily operations of the police department. At meetings, Explorers learn various aspects of police work and participate in role-playing related to their training. Explorers also attend conferences and training academies where they compete against other posts for recognition.
All Explorer candidates are subject to background checks and approval by the O’Fallon Police Department and the O’Fallon Explorer Post.
For more information and to RSVP, contact Officer Joe Fomera, O’Fallon Police Department Community Services Division, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (636) 379-5685.
