Exploring's purpose is to provide experiences that help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.

Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate a specific Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 911was established to match young people interested in law enforcement careers with Deputies from the Sheriff's Office. Explorers are involved in many community activities, participate in a ride-a-long program with Deputies, and receive special training in law enforcement. This program helps youth pursue their special interest in law enforcement, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens. A very large percentage of explorers determine that law enforcement is a profession worth pursuing, and go on to study criminal justice and law enforcement in college. Pitt County Sheriff's Office explorers will grow to become Police Officers, Deputy Sheriff’s, State Troopers, federal agents, Military Police, business persons, and productive members of the community.

Citizens Academy IIThe Citizens Academy is an interactive program designed to provide Pitt County citizens the opportunity to become acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office.

In a classroom setting, often enhanced with field trips and tours, participants are given a “hands-on” experience in learning. Citizens will explore various aspects of law enforcement, including Narcotics, Investigations, a mock trial, processing a crime scene as well as a tour of the Pitt County Detention Center. Each class provides insight into the challenging tasks Deputy Sheriffs and Investigators face on a daily basis.

The next Citizen’s Academy will start in the fall of 2013.

Participation in the academy requires an 10 week commitment. Classes will be held weekly on Tuesday nights from 6:30 p.m.— 8:30 p.m. with a Graduation ceremony on the final night. There is no fee for the academy and participation is limited to 25 citizens per class. Participants must be 18 or older. The class is not for any certification purposes, but rather informational in nature and provides an opportunity for learning and positive interaction between our law enforcement professionals and the citizens we serve.

This program requires ongoing communication and partnerships with the community, law enforcement agencies, mental health systems, consumers/peers, family advocates, community colleges, and the medical community. East Carolina Behavioral Health Local Management Entity utilizes local county funds and contracts with Pitt County Sheriff’s Office to provide this valuable training.

Telecommunicators are also first responders. When an individual calls 911 during a crisis, a Telecommunicator is the first point of contact. A 2-day (16-hour) training based on the Memphis CIT Model is offered through our program. Our program has certified 49 Telecommunicators/Dispatchers

Our CIT training is open to any sworn NC Law Enforcement Officer. Registration and training is offered through the Pitt Community College BLET training program in Greenville and the College of the Albemarle Corporate and Continuing Education in Elizabeth City.
