The Fremont Police Explorers are part of the Department's Volunteer Program.
The Fremont Police Explorers are affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, Learning for Life Program. Interested applicants go through a rigorous interview process to be accepted into the program. Teenagers (14-18 years old) apply to be a part of the program to learn about law enforcement, community service, and leadership development skills.
Each summer, the teens attend the annual Law Enforcement Explorer Academy hosted by the the San Diego Sheriff's Department. This eight day, live-in camp exposes teens to the police academy experience while fostering physical fitness, teamwork, and critical thinking skills.
Fundraising and Donations
Fund-raisers and donations are used directly to help offset the costs to send each Explorer to the Academy. The costs incurred include tuition, lodging, food, and transportation expenses.
Donations are also used to organize team building events throughout the year and the purchase of awards/plaques for high achieving Explorers.
How to Donate
The Explorer program is not a non-profit organization and therefore donations are not tax-exempt. If you would like to make a donation towards the Explorer Post, please make checks payable to "Fremont Police Explorers." Donations can be dropped off at our front desk Mon-Fri 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. or mailed to:
