2009 Cadet Explorer Group

The North Las Vegas Police Explorer Program is a youth organization affiliated with the National Boy Scout Learning for Life Program and is designed to assist young people in preparing for their future.

Along with instructing them in the understanding of all areas involved in a law enforcement profession, it is also our goal to build on the Explorers themselves. We do this by building on their self-esteem, maturity, discipline, and responsibility.

The Explorer Program is a year round program and our meetings are each Wednesday
evening from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The location of the weekly meeting may change occasionally, but are generally held at the North Las Vegas Justice Center located at 2332 Las Vegas Boulevard North (at the corner of Civic Center and LVBN) in North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030.

New candidates should contact NLVPD Explorer Program Advisor Sgt. Salkoff at (702) 633-1813. For more information please refer to the Frequently Asked Question link listed below.
