This grant will aid in funding Academy costs and competition fees for participants of the Brea Police Department Explorers Post. The post is designed to build confidence, instill respect for others, create a sense of pride and achievement via community service, and expose participants to all aspects of police work in a controlled and safe environment. A scholarship fund allows the Department to attract and retain students to participate in this important program.

Being a police officer in today’s environment is a challenging and stressful, yet rewarding career. Many former explorers have moved on to successful careers at the Brea Police Department and other law enforcement agencies.
