Interested and qualified persons must submit an Explorer application which is available at the Richmond Police Department. Instructions for completion and return are on the application. The applications will be reviewed to ensure that the applicant meets the basic requirements for the position. A preliminary criminal investigation records check will be conducted. If the records check is clear, the applicant will be notified of the date and time for a personal interview. The interview will measure the applicant's abilities for decision making, communications, and public relations as well as grooming and demeanor. Applicants are welcome to ask questions about the program.
If the interview is successful, the applicant will be given a background information packet to complete. The background investigation will then be conducted. If it is successful, the applicant will be scheduled to attend the next
Richmond Explorers are required to successfully complete the physical agility test, POST training, written, and practical testing.
Explorers are generally kept away from potentially hazardous situations. However, should an injury occur, Explorers are covered by State Compensation Insurance while on duty and/or training as described under the Disaster Service Worker Act. The coverage pays all medical expenses and a weekly disability allowance should you miss more than 5 days of work. Boy Scouts of America supplies a secondary policy covering the Explorer should you be injured during a department-sponsored social activity. The secondary policy pays up to $7,500.00 in medical and $500.00 in dental benefits in the event the family's policy does not cover the injury. Boy Scouts also covers the Explorer for $15,000.00 personal liability insurance and $500.00 property damage liability insurance while engaged in any authorized function.
Police Explorers at Your EventWe often receive requests for our Explorers to attend and/or assist at public events. Explorer Post 110 stands ready to meet those requests as best we can! To streamline and track the request process we have now brought it online through the Police Explorer Request Form. Please complete and submit your request form through this link. Your application should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the event so we can consider it and add it to our calendar. Once we receive your submission we will contact you within five business days. Although the department attempts to honor community requests, we cannot grant Explorers for all events.
Please note two important things:1. RPD Explorers are provided by the City free of charge; however, given that the RPD Explorer Post is a youth volunteer program, if the event is longer than four hours in duration the event host should provide the Explorers with a meal.
2. RPD Explorer Post youth members cannot attend an event without the supervision of a Richmond Police Department Advisor. Depending upon the nature of the event and sponsorship, there may be a charge for the Advisor's time (Advisors are sworn RPD members).
We appreciate your support of the Richmond Police Explorer program.
