INCIDENT OPD Explorer Program - graduation event 
DATE/TIME Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 1 p.m. 
LOCATION Pacifica High School
Performing Arts Center 

(Oxnard, CA) On Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 1 p.m. eight participants of the Oxnard PD Explorer Academy Post #9286 will graduate. The event will take place at the Pacifica High School Performing Arts Center. 
The Explorer academy began on June 11, 2012 with ten participants. These Explorer recruits spent many hours in the classroom, taking tours of law enforcement facilities and meeting with local law enforcement professionals.
The curriculum at the Explorer academy included: report writing, traffic laws, traffic investigation, cultural diversity, crime scene preservation, juvenile laws, search & seizure procedures, the criminal justice system, crime prevention, ethics and patrol procedures. The recruits were also introduced to various units at OPD via tours and presentations. In addition to academic instruction the recruits participated in physical conditioning.  
 Explorer recruits are mentored by Oxnard PD officers, some of whom also started their law enforcement careers in the Explorer Program. The recruits learn character development, law enforcement history, community investment and patriotism. The Explorer Program is an excellent opportunity for high school aged youth to invest in their futures through involvement in many types of police and community activities. 
For any questions related to the OPD Explorer Program or the graduation, please contact Officer Jason Rodriguez at
