Explorer Program

The Pickens County Explorer Post 138 has been in existence for several decades and has become an extremely successful program that serves to mentor the youth within our local communities. The program is designed to function under the joint guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America(B.S.A.) and the Sheriff's Office. The purpose of this program is to promote social, recreational and community relations activities for Explorers in addition to the training and educational opportunities they receive in law enforcement.

The Explorer Program targets adolescents and young adults from fourteen to twenty years of age. Explorers meet on a weekly basis and they are required to maintain passing grades in order to remain active with the Post. The training they receive in general law enforcement also prepares them for annual competitions held during the summer months.

The Explorer Program is often the pathway for the children of today to become professional law enforcement officers of tomorrow.
