NEW: HPD To Launch Explorer Program
The Harrisonburg Police Department plans to reestablish the Explorer Program - an organization for youth interested in future careers in law enforcement.
Police say the development of the local program is in its infancy stage, but guidelines and the application process should be established this summer.
“As police chief of the Harrisonburg Police Department, I am pleased to invite those interested in the Explorer Program to participate in this exciting program that is being formed amongst a group of young adults, who share an interest in law enforcement careers,” said Chief Stephen Monticelli.
Participants will work closely with HPD officers and have opportunities for service, social and other activities.
