Madison Heights Police Explorer Post #1551
Explorers Today......LEADERS Tomorrow!


Exploring is a section of the Boy Scouts of America designed to expose high school students to career fields before they make a commitment to college.

The Madison Heights Police Department has sponsored a Law Enforcement Post since 1976.

The primary purpose of the post is to provide members with situations simulating real life law enforcement experiences to assist with their "exploration". The Madison Heights Post is chartered with the Boy Scouts of America as Post #1551.

Explorers ranging in age from 15 to 21 years old perform a variety of duties. They dispatch for the Police Reserves, work traffic control at special city events and hold membership meetings twice a month, during which they receive training for the many competitions in which they participate. Like the Police Reserves, the Explorer Post is a highly structured unit with written rules and regulations controlling post operations and member behavior. Members wear a uniform that is uniquely different from the Police Department’s other uniforms.

Post #1551 has approximately 28 members who donate their time to serve the community at established affairs such as the Memorial Day Parade, Fourth of July fireworks, community fairs, and festivals.
