Burien/SeaTac Explorer Post #3308  

Police Explorers are a group of youth volunteers, ages 14 to 20, who are interested in the field of Law Enforcement.  There is no residency requirement; current members come from throughout King County.  Explorers may aspire to become police officers while others may merely be interested in learning about the profession.  Explorers work city/community events such as the 4th of July Fireworks at Angle Lake, the SeaTac Christmas Tree Lighting event, Back to School Fair, Shop with a Cop, etc.  In addition, they sometimes assist with parking control at special events.

The application process requires candidates to complete a written application and pass an interview.  A thorough background check is conducted in which references and criminal history are evaluated.  Explorers are required to have a minimum 2.0 grade average, clean criminal history, and be willing to commit to a minimum of one year of volunteering.

Each Explorer commits to at least four hours of community service a month, fulfilled by attending meetings.  Meeting are held every other Monday from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm at the Burien Police Department which is located at 14905 6th Avenue SW in Burien.  Individuals interested are welcome to observe a meeting but must contact us prior to doing so.

For further questions or information about the program, contact Detective Ricardo Cueva at 206.396.4128 or email at ricardo.cueva@kingcounty.gov.
