Basic Information on Post 2565
Explorer Post 2565, affiliated with the Office of the Macomb County Sheriff, has been in existence since 1978. The post is part of the Boy Scouts of America Great Lakes Council under the Learning for Life Division. The post was started by Sheriff William Hackel with one advisor and a few high school students who expressed an interest in becoming police officers.
Over the years, the post has continuously grown. The post members today include students from all over Macomb County. Each year brings new ideas and more community participation. The Post provides these young adults (age 14 - 20) with the opportunity to view a career in Law Enforcement.
Although not all Explorers pursue this career, it provides them with a better understanding of the Laws that govern our society. The program provides the Explorers with "hands on" experience relating to their chosen career field.
The post holds regularly scheduled meetings with officers who address the group on the various facets of a career in Law Enforcement. (Presentations include specialized fields such as: Crime Scene Investigations, Canine Unit, Domestic Violence Response, Accident Investigations, etc.)
A limited Job shadow program gives the Explorer firsthand knowledge of a patrol officer's duties by letting the Explorer ride in a patrol vehicle or observe in the jail during a regular shift.
Explorers often volunteer for civic and community projects such as traffic and crowd control, child fingerprinting, and Halloween student patrols. Explorers are NOT Police Officers.
