The Explorer program is hosting a “first nighter” event next Monday, Feb. 13 at Malone Intermediate School in Prescott starting at 6 p.m. for persons interested in joining the program.
The Police Explorers is a program of young adults and teens ages 14-21 taking part in police activities and training with advising officers from the department to help them learn the skills of not only being a police officer, but also in many fields of law enforcement which offer potential careers.
