The Evanston Police Department plans to restore its Explorer program for high school and college young people after a 30-year hiatus.
Twelve Evanston Township High School students have applied for membership in the post and have been accepted, the department said in a news release, and current plans, under the direction of Officer Enjoli Daley, are for the group to meet twice a month, to receive instruction and participate in practical exercises related to law enforcement operations.
The post will be led by Sgt. Scott Sophier who was a Police Explorer with the Skokie Police Department during his high school years. Officer Daley will act as the Post Chairman.
