What is Law Enforcement Exploring?

Law Enforcement Exploring is governed under the Learning for Life Program through the Boy Scouts of America. This program is designed to acquaint young men and women with the nature and complexity of the law enforcement profession, and to prepare them for a potential career in the field. The purpose is to build character, develop leadership skills, and promote teamwork. Explorers gain an appreciation for community service and develop good citizenship skills.
