The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, with the Humboldt County Office of Education are pleased to announce that their Sheriff’s Explorers will be sworn in by Sheriff Gary Philp next week. The news media is invited to join us at the ceremony at the Humboldt County Office of Education on Tuesday, May 9, 2006 at 3:00 p.m.
The Explorers have been meeting for the last six months and are now in uniform. The Sheriff’s Explorers are young men and women, ages 14 through 20, who are interested in possible pursuing law enforcement careers. Exploring’s purpose is to provide experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible caring adults, particularly in the law enforcement community. The Explorers are all volunteers who have the opportunity to work side by side with law enforcement and participate in community events.
“This program is a long time in the making,” said Sheriff Philp. “We are pleased to give these young people an opportunity to explore the field of Law Enforcement.”
