Membership in the LVMPD Explorer program is open to young adults, male and female, age 16 through 20 years, 6 months, currently attending high school, graduated, or who have obtained a G.E.D. The following guidelines shall also be met before approval for membership is granted:
Each prospective member must agree to submit to a thorough background investigation into their moral character and criminal history. This investigation is conducted by a member of the LVMPD Explorer Background Investigation Team.
The investigator may look into the applicant's school and work history and may choose to contact current or former teachers and employers and personal references.
Applicants must be truthful on all questions and paperwork. Dishonesty is grounds for immediate and permanent disqualification.
Applications are not currently being accepted.
The next anticipated opening will be February, 2017.
To be a LVMPD Explorer takes commitment. In order to effectively prepare for a successful experience, we strongly urge prospective members to begin memorizing our department’s radio codes, dispositions and phonetic alphabet. Explorers will be tested on these codes verbatim and must have them fully memorized to remain eligible for the program. PDF File: “Radio Codes, Dispositions and Phonetic Alphabet”
Physical fitness is equally important in a career in law enforcement. Police and Corrections explorers must pass physical fitness standards twice each year to continue in the program. We highly suggest that prospective members begin and maintain a physical fitness regimen.
