BEAUFORT, SC (April 30, 2013/11:00 AM) – The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is again accepting applications for the Law Enforcement Explorers program.
Beaufort County youths between the ages of 14-20 who are interested in exploring the field of law enforcement are encouraged to apply. Joining the Explorer Post #278 will afford young men and women invaluable hands-on training and first-hand familiarity with the various roles and duties assumed by members of the Sheriff’s Office.
With emphasis on career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education, and leadership experience, this program is aimed at recruiting and preparing teens interested in a future career in law enforcement. Explorer Post #278 will meet every other Thursday evening from 7-9 pm.
Applicants must meet the following general requirements: drug free, no criminal record, maintain good grades, have a clean driving record (if licensed), and must be willing to dedicate time to post activities. These activities include participation in various community functions to include local parades, charitable walk/run events, clean-up initiatives, high school graduations, and public safety presentations. Explorers are also permitted to participate in ride alongs with on-duty deputies, during which they will be uniformed and will assist in various capacities.
