CUYAHOGA COUNTY – Are you interested in a career in law enforcement with a hands-on approach to learning? The Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department Explorer Post #701 invites young adults ages 14-21 to an open house demonstration and recruitment seminar.

Sheriff’s Department Explorer Post #701 is committed to helping students better prepare themselves for the real world of law enforcement. More than 200 Explorers have become deputy sheriffs, corrections officers, police and other agency officers, EMTs, firemen, and military personnel.

During the school year, students meet from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings for as long as they choose to stay in the Explorer program, or until they reach age 22. Classes taught during weekly sessions include: Range Instruction, Radio Procedure, Warrant & Hazmat Instruction, K9 & SWAT Demonstrations, Handcuffing & Arrest Techniques, Ohio Laws of Search and Seizure, and Corrections Center and Medical Examiner’s Office tours.

For students, taking the first step as an Explorer to further understand the field has led to advancement in achieving career goals and has given many young men and women the tools needed to be successful in their future career.
