If you are in the West Springfield, Franconia, Mount Vernon, City of Alexandria, or Fort Belvoir areas, and interested in learning more about Exploring, Please check out the links and information below.

The Fairfax County Police Explorer Post is a youth run program open to young men and women ages 14 (and completed the 8th grade) and 20 with an interest in learning more about careers in the field of Law Enforcement. The program provides the opportunity to learn about law enforcement, serve the community through public service, and teaches important life skills such as leadership, public speaking, and self-confidence.

Explorers receive extensive training in various techniques used by law enforcement professionals. This training includes traffic stops, building searches, bomb threat response, hostage negotiation, accident reconstruction, and arrest & search techniques. Explorers become familiar with police radio procedures, patrol areas, vehicles, equipment, and methods of patrol. In addition, Explorers are eligible to participate in the Department's ride along program where they get to ride with a Patrol Officer and experience life through the eyes of an Officer. Explorers are given an overview of the Fairfax County Police Department as a whole and its daily operations.
