Explorer Post 320

Boy Scouts of America sponsors the Explorer Programs in a wide variety of professions, including Medical Professions, Chemistry, High Adventure and Law Enforcement. The Hudson Police Department participates in the Police Explorer Program through Explorer Post #320.

The Hudson Police Department Explorer Post is a group of young teens and adults, ages 14-21, 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. Upon meeting requirements, Explorers are allowed to ride along in the field with a patrol officer and respond to police calls, participating in the normal routines of Community Policing and interacting with the Community. This provides an opportunity for Explorers to get a first hand perspective of the reality of modern day law enforcement.

The Explorer program is designed to build character, develop leadership skills and personal potential, develop an appreciation for community service, and good citizenship habits. Hudson Police Department Explorers take part in events such as: Old Homes Day, Child Safety Seat Inspections, CHIPS Fright Night, Blood Drives, Sobriety Checkpoints, Citizen Police Academies and other special events within the community.

The Post's Advisory Staff is made up of full time sworn personal assigned to different areas within the agency.

The Hudson Police Department is looking for males and females who want to become part of our organization. We're seeking people who are eager to learn about police work, leadership and service to the community. High School students in the Honors Program can use their service in the Explorers Post as part of their community service hours required for graduation.

The monthly meetings includes such activities as physical fitness training, uniform inspections, Patrol Operations (vehicle stops, officer safety, and traffic control) report writing, and Community Orientated Policing.

The following qualifications must be met for participation in the program.
  • Males & Females
  • Ages 14 to 21
  • No major Criminal Records
  • Cannot be on Probation or Parole
  • Maintain at least a 2.0 GPA
