Laredo PD opens applications for Explorer Program

LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- The Laredo Police Department is looking for their next group for their Explorer program.

This program has been in place since the 1980's for 20 teenagers who would like to learn more about law enforcement.

The program is year round and shows the Explorers firsthand the requirements, benefits and sacrifices that come with the career.

To apply, you must be at least 15-years-old but no older than 20.

You cannot have a criminal history.

You must be enrolled in school and have a least a 3.0 GPA.

If you want to apply, you should also be in good physical condition.

Officers will be at the City Hall Annex Building this Sunday. To apply, you must pick up an application from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.

In the last few years, 14 former Explorers are now Law Enforcement Officers on the local, state and federal level.

Besides training, Explorers are also active in community service, fund raising and competing.
