Summit County Sheriff’s Office invites students to explore law enforcement careers

The Summit County Sheriff's Office is inviting high school students and parents to an open house for the law enforcement Explorer program on Tuesday, May 30, from 5:30 to 8 p.m at the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco.

The program is designed to better prepare students in grades nine through 12 for careers in law enforcement and emphasizes leadership skills and self-confidence. It is also billed as a way for students interested in the field to get a behind-the-scenes look at what a policing career entails.

Exploring was developed through the Boy Scouts of America and is being facilitated by the Summit County Sheriff's Office in collaboration with other local law enforcement agencies. The program will meet bi-monthly for roughly two hours each session.

"The Sheriff's Office is excited to bring back the Explorer program as an exciting opportunity for students to further develop leadership skills as they engage with their peers, members of our law enforcement community and the public." Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons said in a news release.
