Background
The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office offers a Law Enforcement Explorer Post to youths in the community. The explorer program is part of Learning for Life's career education program for young men and women who are 15 (can be 14 if you have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years old.
 
The Explorers' Post 454 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 of the Sheriff's Office Explorer program is to help youths pursue and further their special interest in Law Enforcement.
 
The El Dorado County Sheriff Explorers provide a variety of law enforcement support functions including traffic control assistance, parking and crowd control, crime prevention and public information, and other public service activities to make our community better and safer. Explorers also receive many hours of law enforcement training by department personnel.
 
Reason for Recommendation
This donation will allow the Sheriff's Office to purchase equipment for this important program that provides valuable life skills for future members of our community.
 
Clerk of the Board Follow Up Actions
None. The Sheriff's Office will purchase needed equipment with this donation.
