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.
