The Dalton Police Department is now accepting applications for the department's 2010-2011 Law Enforcement Explorers program.
The Law Enforcement Explorer Program allows young men and women to gain training and experience in the law enforcement field. The program also provides opportunities for community involvement and development. Program activities center around law enforcement training, organized recreational activities and competitive events. Officers David Saylors and Daniel Jones currently oversee the program. Last winter, the DPD Explorers enjoyed one of the most successful competitions in the program's history, placing in all three events at the annual Winterfest competition in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
To be eligible for the program, an applicant:
- Must be between 14 and 20 years old
- Must maintain at least a "C" average, and must remain enrolled in school until graduation or earn a GED
- Must attend regularly scheduled meetings, including physical training
