  1. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has been working with the youth of Yavapai County through several programs offered within the schools. To provide better information about law enforcement, the EXPLORER program through the Boy Scouts of America was started in Yavapai County in 1989. Prior to this, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office had a similar program that dated back to 1978 called the “cadet” program.

The EXPLORER POST program has allowed the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office to provide a working relationship with our youth to better provide them with the tools necessary to explore Law Enforcement as a career.
