Proceeds from the sales of the Explorers cards will go to fund the Dalton Police Explorers program, which 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 currently oversees the program. Explorers must be between 14 to 20 years old, maintain a C average while remaining in school until graduation or obtain a GED, and must attend regularly scheduled meetings, including physical training.
The Dalton Police Department thanks all of the sponsors of this year's Police Explorers Card for their generous support of the Explorers program.
