The Bloomington Police Department is currently taking applicants for the 2023 – 2024 explorer post program. Open to participants between the ages of 14 and 20, the program offers an excellent opportunity for youth interested in this field to collaborate with police officers and gain knowledge about different career paths in law enforcement. 

Participants must be willing to volunteer time in the community and possess good moral character. Explorers gather once a week on Thursday nights to receive hands-on training, develop valuable leadership skills, become involved in community service projects and make new friends until the state competition held April 18 – 21, 2024.

Applications can be accessed online at and dropped off at the front desk of the Police Department, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, through September 20. For more information, call 952-563-4900.
