The Grundy County Sheriff's Office will be accepting applications for Sheriff's Police Explorers through October 31, 2018.

The Grundy County Sheriff's Police Explorer Program is open to young men and women who are between the ages 14-20, and who have an interest in law enforcement as a profession.

Becoming a Police Explorer allows young adults the opportunity to discover what policing is really like. Exploring gives them the opportunity and the chance to work directly with Police Officers, go on ride-a-longs, receive police training, meet new friends, and feel good about helping out in your community. Through the Explorer Program, Explorers have a hands-on, close-up chance to learn how the law works in their community. Some of the training topics include; Traffic crashes, Police report writing, Criminal laws (state & local), Firearms, the Dangers of Drugs, Motor Vehicle laws, Self Defense, First Aid/CPR and Crime Scene Investigation and Processing.
