Police Explorer Scouts

Post #9799

Sponsored by the Florissant Police Department, the Law Enforcement Explorer Post 9799 (a division of the Boy Scouts of America), exposes young men and women to the career of Law Enforcement.

The program allows these potential Law Enforcement recruits the opportunity to observe law enforcement professionals while they perform their daily duties. In addition, the Florissant Police Department Explorers contribute numerous hours of volunteer service to their community. See FAQ's for more info.
