More about the Rochester Post:
The Rochester Police Explorer Program is a fun and friendly group that studies the many topics within law enforcement. It is required of you to be 14 and a graduate of the eighth grade. Along with learning new things, the explorer group does many hands on activities giving us real life experience in a variety of ways. We have done simunitions, a variety of simulations, defensive tactics, and physical fitness activities, all of which were a lot of fun.
The program is based on friendship, loyalty, and dedication not only to the program, but to the people in it as well. We look forward to the meeting because we are able share what we are passionate about with other people. If you are interested in joining the post, we meet the first and third Mondays of every month from 6:00-8:00 at the Rochester Police Department. If you are interested or have any questions you can contact Officer Andrew Jackson by email.
