Cheektowaga Police Department Explorer Post #464 will sponsor an open house at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 in the lobby of police headquarters, 3223 Union Road.
Explorer programs are a hands-on approach offered to young adults ages 14 to 20 who may be interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement. The program creates an awareness about police work through training, practical experience and competition.
Explorers are given an opportunity to shadow officers as they complete their daily duties.
The open house will focus on a few specialty training options that will be available in the training program. For further information, contact the Cheektowaga Police Community Crime Prevention Office at 897-7293.
