CPD Explorers Program


The Explorer Program is an official program of the Chattanooga Police Department, designed by the Boy Scouts of America to expose young men and women (ages 13-21) to the vast career choices available in law enforcement today. Many of our alumni have continued their career path to successfully achieve positions in local, state and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

Explorers learn in both classroom and field environments, including actual "hands-on" field experience. Weekly meeting presentations include training on Police duties, self defense and investigations. Explorers also attend Explorer competitions every year. Knoxville, TN, Las Vegas, NV and Gatlinburg, TN are some of the cities we compete in.

Explorers are invited to participate in our ride-along program. Members are allowed to ride with a patrol officer and respond to calls

The Chattanooga Police Explorers meet once a week. We invite you to further review the exciting challenges of Exploring with the Chattanooga Police Department and welcome your interest and involvement. Please join our team today.  

To apply, download and complete the CPDExplorersApplication and mail to the Chattanooga Police Department.
