Our curriculum includes:

  • Criminal Law

  • Laws of Arrest 

  • Rules of Evidence 

  • Crime Scene Processing

  • Police Tactics to Include Traffic Stops, Building Searches, and Arrest & Control Tactics

  • Police 10 Codes and Other Radio Procedures

This curriculum, and other various topics, are taught through:​

  • Expert guest speakers

  • Role playing activities

  • Ride Alongs with Police Officers

While  riding with Officers on patrol Explorers observe officers handling actual calls for service and are able to assist with some hands on tasks such as:

  • Traffic control 

  • Speaking with dispatch on the radio 

  • Filling out forms.

Each weekly meeting begins with a uniform inspection, the Pledge of Allegiance, and introduction of the evening's curriculum. We then conclude with physical training and announcements of upcoming events.

A Truly Effective Program

"My time in the Explorers taught me what the Redding Police Department does for the community and what it means to be a Police Officer."
