The Law Enforcement Explorer Program is an important asset for today's young adults that allow participants to explore the career opportunities offered in the law enforcement profession. The Exploring Program is affiliated with Learning for Life. Explorers participate in a variety of training opportunities, community volunteer activities, and explorer competitions in addition to riding along with Patrol Officers. There are both male and female members, ranging in age from 14 - 21 years old.

The diversity in membership provides for a great learning environment to those just entering the program. In addition, older members are able to sharpen their skills by teaching the new members. Advisors mentor the Explorers and assist them in not only learning about the law enforcement profession, but also building upon essential life skills. The Oshkosh Police Explorer program is led by Sergeant Matt Harris and is advised by Officers Don Franklin, Deana Brandl and Adam Haberland. Oshkosh Police Explorer Post #9420 is the only law enforcement post in Winnebago County.
