Explorer Post 178

Explorer Post 178 is a law enforcement Explorer Post for young men and women ages 14 to 21, who are interested in learning more about a career in law enforcement. We are sponsored by the City of Waukesha Police Department.

Post members learn about law enforcement by attending a post meeting during the month.  Each meeting is about 1 hour in length. At these meetings we:
  • Discuss current topics in law enforcement
  • Have training in police topics presented by professionals in all levels of law enforcement, including the:
    • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
    • U.S. Marshal Service
    • Waukesha Police Department
    • Wisconsin State Patrol
Waukesha Police Explorer patch
All members are trained in:
  • Emergency first aid (including CPR)
  • Radio communications
  • Traffic control and more
Putting Training Into Practice
Post members work with our police department to assist in community functions, and after reaching a certain level of training, post members can ride along in squad cars with police officers on patrol.
