The Morris County Sheriff’s Explorer Post #140
may be just the ticket!

Explorer Post #140 is a community-based program sponsored by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office which is designed to educate and involve youth in law enforcement operations. Participants are exposed to many aspects of law enforcement including patrol, communications, K-9, bomb squads, crime scene investigation, courthouse security, emergency response team, crime lab and corrections.

Explorers also participate in community events and service projects such as sponsoring food drives for local food banks, conducting traffic control at community events, marching in local parades and purchasing toys for needy children during the holidays.

Explorers receive classroom instruction and hands-on training from law enforcement officers who are dedicated to working with young people. In addition, the officers arrange activities and trips, bring in guest speakers and act as positive role models, providing career counseling and mentoring.

Participation in the program promotes responsibility, leadership, dedication, honesty and commitment to the community. Explorers must be law-abiding citizens, maintain good grades in school and be team players.

The application process includes an oral interview, background check, physical agility test and acceptance by vote at a regular Post meeting. For further information on becoming an Explorer, please contact Support Services at 973.285.6074.
