The Explorer Program (PDF) provides young adults (age 14-21) with the opportunity to assist the Orange County Sheriff's Department in Rancho Santa Margarita. Through weekly meetings, Explorers can broaden their knowledge and learn first hand about the challenges and rewards of a career in law enforcement. Explorers receive training in a variety of topics including leadership, patrol procedures, first-aid, and laws of arrest. They also participate in ride-alongs with patrol officers, and annual Explorer Academy regional and national competitions. Participants have numerous opportunities to give back to the community through this service volunteer program.
