On May 17th, Police Department staff gave a presentation to Rotary on the Antioch Police Explorer Program and the positive impact it has had with the youth in our community. The program is designed for young women and men with interest in law enforcement. It focuses on civic duty, discipline, and develops leadership qualities in our youth. The Explorers receive training in various police topics, compete at competitions, and attend the Solano County Cadet Academy, annually. They provide service to the community by assisting with our safety events and crime prevention efforts in addition to attending police department and city-sponsored activities. The Rotary group was impressed with our Explorers and the goals of our program. At the end of the presentation, Rotary made a very generous donation to our program. Young adults ages 14-20 with interest in law enforcement can find out more about our Explorer Program and apply at Antioch Police Explorer Program
