Explorers 2014King County Sheriff's Office/SeaTac Police Explorers Post #2052

SeaTac Police Explorers is a group of youth volunteers, ages 14-20, who are interested in the field of Law Enforcement. There is no residency requirement; current members hail from throughout King County. Explorers may aspire to become police officers while others may merely be interested in learning about the profession. Explorers work city events such as the International Festival, 4th of July Carnival, or the SeaTac Christmas Tree Lighting event. In addition, they assist the Department with large crime scenes by conducting evidence searches and controlling scene perimeters. Explorers may also go on ride-alongs with patrol officers.

The application process requires candidates to complete a written application and pass an interview. A thorough background check is conducted in which references and criminal history are evaluated. Explorers are required to have a minimum 2.0 grade point average, clean criminal history, and be willing to commit to a minimum of one year of volunteering.

Each Explorer commits to at least four hours of community service a month, fulfilled by attending meetings twice a month.  Meetings are held from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the SeaTac Police Department.  Individuals interested are welcome to observe a meeting, but must contact us prior to doing so.
