The Fort Collins Police Explorer program acquaints young people with the field of law enforcement as a future career choice and is currently accepting applications.

Applicants must be 16 years old, possess a valid Colorado driver’s license, and be able to pass a background check and mandatory drug screening. Explorers volunteer their time to learn about the field of law enforcement and are provided training in a variety of law enforcement topics enabling them to assist the Fort Collins police and the community. Explorers often assist police personnel with traffic control and other non-enforcement functions.

Applications can be obtained from the Records Division at the Fort Collins Police Services building, 2221 S. Timberline Road. All applications must be received by August 16. For more information on the Explorer Scout program, visit the webpage at or e-mail ZXhwbG9yZXJzQGZjZ292LmNvbQ== .
