Explorers Program

Rockdale Explorer Posts 647/645 are sponsored by local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Law Enforcement Exploring is a well-established and highly respected program that has served as a platform from which countless young adults have launched a successful career with local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Explorers also assist with law enforcement-related activities such as traffic direction, parades, community fairs, and crime prevention programs.
