The Powder Springs Police Explorer Post is in search of teenagers and young adults, ages 14-21, interested in a career in Law Enforcement. The Powder Springs Police Explorer Program is chartered through the Boy Scouts of America and is a nationally observed program. Exploring is Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are least 14 (and have completed the 8th grade)... and not yet 21 years of age. Color, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, and economic status and citizenship are not criteria for participation.

Law Enforcement Exploring provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission, and objectives of Law Enforcement. The program provides career orientation experiences, leadership opportunities, and community service activities. Law Enforcement Exploring combines some classroom training with ride-along in police vehicles, community policing, hands-on training, and much more. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their interests, grow, and develop.

If you are interested in the Powder Springs Police Explorer Program or have questions about the program, please contact Detective Jody Matthews at or Detective Keon Hackett at, or both can be reached at 770-943-1616 during normal business hours. Applications are available at the Powder Springs Police Department, Monday-Friday (excluding holidays) 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
