Explorer Program

The department’s long-standing commitment to the youth in our community is demonstrated by its support of the Police Explorer Post.

The Explorers are made up of young adults between the ages of 14 and 21 years old. They learn about all aspects of Law Enforcement, such as CSI, Tactics, DUI, Gun Safety, Radio Codes, and more. They also work thousands of hours of community service a year. This is a volunteer position and service hours may be used toward required volunteer hours with their respective educational institutions.  We are currently recruiting!

The Laguna Beach Police Explorer Post 1016 was founded to give our local youth an introduction into a career in Law Enforcement.  More importantly, Explorers gain confidence and experience working in a structured environment. Many previous Laguna Beach Police Explorers have gone on to work for various Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies including Laguna Beach.  

Interested in joining our team?  Contact Explorer Advisor Corporal David Gensemer for more information.  He can be reached at (949) 497-0701 or by email.
