The Palm Bay Police Explorers Post was established in the early 1970's to develope a more positive relationship between the police officers and the youth of our community.
The Explorers is one of the most exciting organizations in which a young person can be involved. Exploreres are provided first hand knowledge of law enforcement procedures.
The Explorers are chartered through the Boy Scouts of America and are sponsered by the Palm Bay Police Department.
It is our hope through training and experiences that the youth of our community will become involved in law enforcement and community service.
The objectives of the Palm Bay Police Explorers are to develop good character, citizenship, and a positive attitude toward law enforcement; to train post members in the field of law enforcement; and to provide an additional source of trained manpower to assist the Police Department in the accomplishment of its duties.
