Briefing Room: SBPD wants explorers

Applicants must be 14 to 18 and have a GPA of 2.0 or better


Hi Seal Beach!

The Seal Beach Police Department is looking for young men and women who are eager to participate in its Police Explorer Post 1041 program.  Applicants must be between the ages of 14 and 18 years old, and have a 2.0 or better grade point average.  Police Explorers learn about law enforcement procedures, ride-along with police officers, provide traffic and parking control for special events, and a host of other activities.  Participation is not limited to Seal Beach residents.

The Exploring Program helps emphasizes career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education and leadership experience.  Exploring’s purpose is to provide experiences that help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.  Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.

Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities.  Local community organizations, like the Seal Beach Police Department, initiate a specific Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community.  The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Seal Beach Police Explorer should contact Corporal Samantha Mathias at (562) 799-4100 ext. 1616 or pick up an application at the Seal Beach Police Department lobby.
