Hoopeston Police Explorers

The Hoopeston Police Department now has an active youth-oriented criminal justice program called "Explorers". Serving as another outreach program of the police department's Community Policing policy, young adults ages 14-20 can join and see, first-hand, the career of law enforcement. Typically members receive training and orientation in all areas of law enforcement and criminal justice from highly trained police officers. Motivated youths interested in a career in law enforcement can get a "close-up and personal" look at this rewarding career.

Youths interested in joining the Hoopeston Police Department Explorers, or if you are just wanting information, you can contact the Hoopeston Police Department or Program Director Sgt. Jim DeWitt at 217-283-5196 or send us an email at admin@hoopestonpolice.org
