EXPLORER POST #226
As an Explorer, you will be trained in a variety of areas to help you better understand the field of law enforcement. The Stanislaus county Sheriff's Department has many unique and important areas of responsibility.
Explorers do not carry weapons or engage in direct law enforcement activities. They do not carry handguns, batons, pepper spray or other less than lethal weapons. Explorers are not peace officers and are not authorized to make arrests. The primary goal of an Explorer is to observe and learn from trained professionals in our agency. New Explorers are required to spend their first 48 hours working in the jail before they are eligible to ride with a deputy on patrol.
Most participants have the opportunity to learn in a wide range of interactive environments including patrol operations, investigation, custody facilities, records/technology, and administrative services. Explorers are given the chance to work side-by-side with a full time Deputy Sheriff while on patrol.
There are also many interesting and exciting special units with their own unique responsibilities. Explorers who have learned the basics and earn a position of responsibility often become involved in training and response by the following highly specialized units:
• DIVE & SWIFT WATER RESCUE TEAM
