Explorer Post

Kids on a Mission

The primary mission of the Hesperia Sheriff's Explorer Program is to educate and mentor youth and provide in-depth firsthand experience in the field of Law Enforcement. The program shall serve as a potential recruitment tool for future men and women in the Law Enforcement and as a community relations effort between the Sheriff's Department, the youth and the community as a whole.
