Monroe County Community College and the Monroe State Police are partnering with other local, fire and EMS agencies to begin an Explorers Program this fall.
Participants will meet bi-weekly to gain experience in all areas of public safety, including classroom instruction, lab work and field trips throughout the county. The program is designed to expose the students to the criminal justice system, as well as law enforcement.
This will be an experiential learning opportunity for anyone, age 13-18, interested in establishing a career path to law enforcement, public safety and criminal justice degrees.
The first informational meeting for the Explorers Program is Tuesday, September 26, 2023 at 6 p.m. in Room Z-272 in the La-Z-Boy Center on the college's main campus, 1555 S. Raisinville Road, Monroe.
For more information about the Explorers Program, email MCCC Criminal Justice Associate Professor, Dan Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
