Explorer Program

The Redford Township Police Explorers are dedicated to providing the community's youth with training and experiences geared toward a career in law enforcement. The Exploring program introduces members to police skills, including traffic stops, domestic violence, accident investigations, and tactical building searches. Explorers are further exposed to police work through support activities at township festivals and parades, sponsored outings to courts and jails, as well as ride-a-longs with officers after reaching 18 years of age. Police Explorers attend boot-camp-style training academies and compete in statewide competitions. Leadership, discipline, and community service are instilled into our members through training, competitions, and township events. The Redford Township Police Explorers participate in Goodfellows events, Shop with a Cop, Relay for Life, and even sponsor a Halloween Candy Scan for the Township's children.
