MPD Explorer Post
If you have ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a Minneapolis Police Officer? Then join the MPD Explorer Post.
The MPD Explorer post isa non-profit program run by Minneapolis Police Officers who volunteer their time to mentor and guide young adults. Volunteer officers train young adults ages 14-21 who are in high school or college and are interested in the field of law enforcement. Advisors train Explorers in a variety of scenarios and then compete at local, state and national level competitions.
• Traffic Stops
• Domestic Crisis Intervention
• Traffic Crash Investigation
• Hostage Negotiation
• Burglary Response
• Search and Arrest
• White Collar Crime
• Emergency First Aid
• Shoot/Don't Shoot
• And more!
In addition, Explorers assist Minneapolis Police Officers in various community events such as the Uptown Art Fair, NE Parade, Aquatennial Parade and other large scale events as needed.
Explorers in good standing may participate in ride alongs with Minneapolis Police Officers. Once Explorers graduate from high school, Minneapolis Police Officers mentor and encourage Explorers to become Community Service Officers for the Minneapolis Police Department.
Explorer applicants undergo a criminal background check, must maintain a 3.0 GPA, be 14-21 years old and in high school or enrolled in a college at the time of acceptance, and above all, must have an interest in the field of law enforcement.
