Explorer Program

Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is in the process of re-establishing this program.

Law Enforcement Exploring is a Boy Scouts of America program that provides high school students an opportunity to explore a career in law enforcement. This work-based program is part of the Learning for Life's Career Education program and focuses on building life skills and gaining leadership experience. The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 422 was officially established in 2009 and is currently providing Explorers with skills in:

  • 911 Dispatch
  • Detention
  • Gang Awareness
  • Investigation
  • Legal Processes
  • Patrol
  • Search and Rescue
  • SERT training
  • Victim Services

The Explorers play an integral part in program development by designing guidelines, bylaws and entry requirements. Monthly meetings focus on core program requirements, training exercises, and committee products. Membership is open for recruitment each October and can be pursued by filling out the Explorer Application and turning all needed documentation into an Explorer or your high school Guidance Counselor by October 31st.

Post 422 honors the late Jody Rey, a Sheriff's Office Investigator, for her years of service to the citizens of Cherokee County.
