THE ESTABLISHMENT OF EXPLORER POST 244:

    The Duluth Police Explorer Post 244 was established in June 1992. The Post is sponsored by the Duluth Police Department and is named in honor of Duluth Police Sergeant Gary Wilson who was killed in the line of duty on April 10, 1990.

THE PURPOSE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT EXPLORING:

1. Provide a vocational experience, by which Explorers may gain insight and knowledge regarding aspects of the law enforcement professions, including required qualifications, training, and skills, and that they are able to practice such skills with special events and competitions.

2. To develop leadership skills through experience of self-government and cooperation within the organization.

3. To provide the area with a well trained volunteer organization to assist the City of Duluth.

4. To show people in the community, through a wholesome representation of the Police Department, that today's youth are recognized for effective leadership and commitment to the people in this city.

5. To give everyone respect and honest relations with a professional and courteous attitude with an experienced group of individuals.

6. Assist the Duluth Police Department personnel with duties and tasks as assigned.

7. Promote social programs designed for Explorers to have fun in a relaxed environment such as trips, camping outings, and other get-togethers.

MEETINGS AND TRAINING:

 
    Meetings are held every other Tuesday, usually two to three hours in length, which includes a lecture on the meeting topic, practical training relating to the topic, and Explorer issues that need to be addressed. Training topics include first aid, police radio procedures, defensive tactics, and shooting, as well as many different aspects of the law enforcement field.
 
    Throughout the year, Explorers will have the opportunity to participate in competitions with other Explorer Posts. In addition, DPD Explorers provide a service to the community by helping out at major events throughout the year, and also patrol the Canal Park/Lakewalk area during the summer.
