Explorer Post 606

Explorer Post 606 is open to Hanover County young adult’s ages 14 to 20 years of age. The program is sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office as a service to the residents of Hanover County.

Training & Education

Members receive law enforcement training and citizenship and character education while gaining experience in leadership roles. Exploring is a youth led program with Law Enforcement Officers serving as advisers and facilitators for the program. The post routinely provides community service by assisting the Deputies with crime prevention activities, fingerprinting of children and traffic control at community events. 

Exploring is a great way for youth to prepare for their chosen career field or help them decide if their interest is strong enough to lead them into a law enforcement career.  Many active Hanover Sheriff's deputies were one Law Enforcement Explorers, and just as many former Explorers have gone to varied career fields building upon the skills gained through the Explorer program.
