Evanston police have openings in program for teens


Evanston high-schoolers are invited to apply for openings in the police department’s Police Explorer Program, which offers youth an opportunity to learn directly from officers that can help boost their chances for a career in law enforcement.

The department’s Explorer Post 1863 is offered through a collaborative effort with the Boy Scouts of America Exploring program.

The program, which couples classroom style curriculum with hands-on activities, meets twice monthly on Wednesday evenings and is offered free except for an annual $40 cost for insurance.

An information program for Evanston youth grades 9-12 and their parents/guardians is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 6 p.m. at 909 Lake St. Parental permission is required to participate in the program.

For more information and/or to RSVP, email Officer Enjoli Daley at [email protected]
