Welcome to the Princeton Police Department Law Enforcement Explorer Post 40. The Princeton Police Department along with the cooperation of the community, have started and sponsored the explorer post.

The Police Department realizes the impact they have on young adults and would like the experiences with these young adults to be positive.

The Police Department also realizes the young adults need different programs to participate in to help them become better citizens of the community. The Police Department intends to make the experience of the program an enjoyable one as well as a great learning experience.


The mission of this program is to better educate young adults and adults of the duties and responsibilities of the Princeton Police Department, through classroom training and practical application with officers of the Police Department. With the training and practical application, the intent of the program is also to help the explorers become better citizens of the community.

The Princeton Police Department Law Enforcement Explorer Post 40 is the first of it's kind in this area. Any young adult interested in participating in the explorer post should contact the Police Department. The Police Department will also need the assistance of adult citizens in the community to operate the explorer post. An adult citizen does not need to become an adviser to assist. Any assistance by adult citizens will be greatly appreciated.
