As a Police Explorer, young adults learn exactly what it takes to be a police officer. Explorers are taught basic police procedures that will give them the knowledge on how to handle emergency calls for service safely and effectively. Explorers meet weekly at their assigned area command.


Police Explorers see policing in action as they ride along with patrol officers during their 10-hour shifts. During ride alongs, Explorers see what it's like to be a police officer on the streets of Las Vegas as they see how and what police officers do on a daily basis.


Police Explorers learn:

Handcuffing, pat downs and searches

Misdemeanor traffic stops

Radio Procedures

Person stops

Arrest Procedures

Building searches

Responding to 911 calls

About the Explorer Program

The LVMPD Explorer Program exposes young adults to a career in law enforcement by matching their interests in four specific areas: Crime Scene Investigation, Corrections, Dispatch, and Police. In addition to the training they receive, the LVMPD Explorer Program also aims to develop and refine qualities such as maturity, responsibility, character, civic duty, and personal fitness.


The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is committed to our mission to protect the community through prevention, partnership and professional service. That commitment and dedication extends to the millions of visitors that Las Vegas plays host to each year. I'm devoted to making what I believe is the best police department in the country even better. - Sheriff Doug Gillespie
