The Buffalo Police Department is looking for recruits for its youth Explorers program that begins Feb. 16.
The program is designed to "foster relationships between Buffalo police officers and youth in the City of Buffalo by providing opportunities that promote leadership, confidence, self discipline and community service," according to a flyer for the program.
Applicants must be city residents between the ages of 14 and 20 and must commit to meeting once or twice a week for the 16-week program.
Applications are due by Friday, Feb. 12.
