The Murphy Police Explorer post is one of our most prized programs at the Murphy Police Department for one reason: it’s geared towards our youth, the future of law enforcement! This program offers those, ages 14 to 21 with an interest in law enforcement, the chance to learn what it’s like to be a police officer. The explorers then get the chance to practice and deploy the techniques learned in both weekly hands-on training as well as state and national competitions.
The Murphy Police Explorers are notorious for bringing home first and second place trophies in every competition they attend. We contribute this achievement to both our dedicated Explorer members and, most importantly, the advisers that give their time and knowledge to train these remarkable teenagers. The post is governed by several Murphy police officers ranking from patrol to sergeant.
