Membership in the LVMPD Explorer program is open to young adults, male and female, age 16 through 20, 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 LVMPD background detective. If the applicant is a minor, a parent or guardian must attend with them. The interview normally takes between 1 and 2 hours and is held at LVMPD Headquarters.
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 disqualification
The background investigation is similar to a formal job interview. Here are a few tips for success during the process:
Applications are not currently being accepted.
Interest Pool applications are currently being accepted.
If the application process is not open, you may also create a user account and submit your profile to the Interest Pool. You will be automatically notified by email when the online application becomes available.
Interest Pool Applications will remain on file until December 1st of each year.
