Explorer Post 592
Explorer Post 592 is a great way to begin the preparation process to become a law enforcement officer. Knowledge gained through training gives you an understanding of the role a Law Enforcement Officer plays in society.
The Explorer Program is not only for those who wish to pursue careers in Law Enforcement, but it offers many opportunities in other areas as well. These areas help to improve the quality of life in the community we live.
The Guilford County Sheriff's Office is the sponsor of Explorer Post 592, a law enforcement education and community service program chartered by the Boy Scouts of America. The Sheriff's Office follows the rules and guidelines set forth by the Boy Scouts of America for all youth organizations in the operation of Explorer Post 592.
There are two levels of Explorer Post 592:
Explorers are members who are of age 14-21 who may participate in ALL aspects of the Post.
- Must have parent’s permission if under the age of 18 to participate.
- Must be enrolled in school (or actively home-schooled) or have graduated.
- If in school you must maintain a grade point average of 2.0.

Explorer Post 592 normally meets on the first and third Tuesdays of every month at 7:00pm-9:00pm.
Occasionally this schedule will be adjusted to meet training and service requirements. Any explorer missing a meeting is required to notify their assigned squad leader. All explorers should maintain a commitment of at least 10 hours per month including meeting time.
When an explorer has satisfied the membership requirements, he/she may participate in the ride along program. This program allows the opportunity to see officers in action on a first-hand basis.
