The North Palm Beach Police Explorer Post 911 brings local youth and law enforcement together through leadership, teamwork, and training. The North Palm Beach Police Explorers are a group of young people ages 14 to 21 with a 2.5 or higher GPA (grade point average) and good moral character, who have an interest in learning about law enforcement as a possible career. Explorers learn about the law, court procedures, police patrol techniques, and organizational skills.

The Explorer Program provides youth with an opportunity to work side by side with police officers and observe their daily duties. Additionally, the North Palm Beach Police Explorers attend all special events and contribute numerous hours of volunteer services to their community.


The North Palm Beach Police Explorers compete against other explorers in both local and state competitions. Without exception they place among the top in all events. The North Palm Beach Police Explorers Post was honored at the 2007 State Competition in Orlando as 1st place in first aid / first responder, 2nd place in traffic stops, and 3rd place in crisis intervention. These continued accomplishments are due to the dedication of the Explorers and their police officer advisers. The explorers compete in the following scenarios:

  • Active Shooter
  • Bicycle Patrol
  • Bomb Threat
  • Crime Scene
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Felony Stop
  • In-Progress Traffic
