Rocklin Police Explorers Academy

From June 16, 2014 to June 20, 2014 the Rocklin Police Explorers attended an Explorer Leadership Academy at College of the Redwoods, hosted by the Humbolt County Sheriff's Department, and sponsored with the help of Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office, the Eureka Police Department, Rocklin Police Department and San Ramon Police Department. The academy was attended by other Northern California agency Explorer programs as well. The Academy is instructed by current and retired law enforcement as well as military personnel.

During the Academy, our Explorers stayed on campus the entire week and slept in the College of the Redwoods Dormitories. Sheriff Mike Downey of the Humbolt County Sheriff's Office spoke to the Explorers to kick off the beginning of the academy which was filled with numerous law enforcement classes such as ethics, basic and advanced officer safety, tactical communications, active shooter response, use of Tasers, prison gangs and force option simulator training. The Explorers were also shown the Humboldt County Sheriff Correctional Facility.  Academy Graduation was held Friday, June 20th, at the College of the Redwoods Police Academy in the Basic Academy Courtroom.

The Rocklin Police Explorer program was created last year as one of many Strategic Goals the Police Department initiated to accomplish the Rocklin City Council's Strategic Areas of Emphasis. The Explorer Program is designed to enhance quality of life by providing youth partnerships and educational opportunities, as well as develop youth character and life skills. The program is open to young men and women ages 14 (and completed the 8th grade) and not yet 21 years old with an interest in learning more about the field of Law Enforcement. The program provides educational training programs for our youth on the purposes, mission, and objectives of the police department. It also provides career orientation, leadership opportunities, and community service activities. The primary goals of the program are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens of our community. The Rocklin Police Department opens recruitment once a year to our local high schools for youth interested in becoming a law enforcement Explorer. For more information about the Rocklin Police Explorer Program, contact our School Resource Officers, Officer Hollis or Officer Davis, at (916) 625-5400.
