The Chesterfield Police Explorer post is a volunteer service program for young adults within the police department. This program gives young people the opportunity to explore a career in law enforcement or simply learn more about the job through membership in the post. Many young people use the Explorer program as a stepping stone for careers in law enforcement; in fact many of our current police officers were once members of the Chesterfield or other local police explorer posts.

Law Enforcement Exploring has been a part of policing for over half a century. Explorers are part of the Boy Scouts of America and are eligible for awards, scholarships, academies, and conferences offered through the Learning for Life Division of the BSA.

Explorers spend much of their time learning the skills needed to be a successful police officer. Explorers assist the department with administrative non-law enforcement type duties. Our explorers learn police radio procedures, crime scene forensic techniques, police policies and procedures, the principals of police patrol, criminal investigation and crowd control, as well as participating in ride-alongs with uniformed patrol officers. As part of the St. Louis Area Law Enforcement Cluster, Chesterfield Explorers participate in regional and national training, details and competitions, allowing them to network with various federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

If you think you might have an interest in becoming involved in this exciting program you can contact PO Chad Meyer at or by phone at 636-537-6769.
