The Cleveland Police Explorer Program

The Cleveland Police Explorer Program is an exciting and challenging opportunity for any interested youth ages 14-20 to become familiar with the procedures of law enforcement. Exploring provides hands-on training relating to police work. Members train with police officers and learn techniques used to conduct daily activities. Upon advancing within the program and completing the minimum requirements, Explorers can participate in the annual Exploring Competition, attend Youth Leadership Conferences, field trips and other activities. Most importantly, the youth that take part in this training will hopefully consider the possibility of becoming members of the Cleveland Division of Police.



The Cleveland Police Foundation is the official charity for the Cleveland Division of Police and the only organization authorized to solicit charitable contributions on its behalf.

We provide funding for youth and community outreach programs, community policing and engagement initiatives, safety & crime prevention programs, and support the members of the Cleveland Division of Police to help them better perform their duties. Contributions to the CPF are tax deductible under section 501 (c)(3) of the IRS Code.
