Explorers Doing Community Service

South Command (Southeast Post 8300 and South Central Post 2202) explorers paired with Sunnyside End Hunger and the Houston Food Bank at the HPD Sunnyside storefront to pass out fresh fruits and vegetables to the community.

By doing community service projects, explorers learn how to give back to their communities.





Even in the rain, the explorers continued to serve the community.

Movie Matinee

 The South Command and Southeast Patrol Interns (Explorers) had an afternoon field trip recently. Explorer advisors took them to see the movie "Max" and have lunch at CiCi's Pizza. 

The Law Enforcement Exploring programs work to develop positive relationships between police officers and youth, and extracurricular activities help to build that bond. 





Lunch at CiCi's Pizza!

Explorer Appreciation Luncheon for the HPD Command Staff

The Explorers and Explorer Advisors organized an appreciation luncheon for the HPD Command Staff. 

The success of the program in its first year is directly due to the hard work of the explorers, the advisors, and the support of the HPD Command Staff.



In attendance were Chief Charles McClelland, Executive Assistant Chief Michael Dirden, Southeast Patrol Captain Kenneth Campbell, Midwest Patrol Captain James Dale, South Central Patrol Captain Heather Morris, and South Central Lieutenant Patricia Cantu. They and many other members of the Command Staff have contributed to the success of the HPD Explorer Program with their support. 

Representatives from the explorer posts present spoke about the importance of the program and what the program meant to them.

Chief McClelland expressed his desire that the HPD Explorer Program become the biggest in the State of Texas.
