The Castle Rock Police Department Explorer Post No. 401 began in early 2004 with eight members. The unit has continued to grow through the years, winning many national competitions along the way.
Explorers learn every aspect of law enforcement - from police officers and command staff. The explorer command staff is extensively trained in all areas to perform peer-to-peer training. Explorers receive community service credit, which they can use toward their high school graduation or college requirements.
Each explorer must:
Complete an oral board with post command staff
Have no criminal history
Maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, or have a diploma or GED
