The Roseville Police Department’s “Explorer Program” is a unique and challenging opportunity that allows young men and women (ages 16-20) to be an integral part of the Department’s operations while gaining exposure as to what a career in law enforcement would be like. Explorers are trained in many aspects of law enforcement and have opportunities in working alongside officers who are in the field patrolling the streets of Roseville.

The Explorers are required to purchase their uniforms and equipment, but we can always help families with hardships as well. There are no additional fees or dues associated with the program. For more regarding the Explorer Program email your questions to mbarbour@roseville.ca.us.
