(OXNARD, Calif)– Tomorrow, July 13, 2013, the Oxnard Police Department will be graduating the largest class of Police Explorers in the County, graduating 34 young men, women, and leaders in our community. 
The Oxnard Police Explorer Post 9286 provides opportunities for high school aged youth to experience firsthand what it takes to get started in a challenging law enforcement career.  The Oxnard Police Explorer Program is affiliated with the Boys Scouts of America.
The Oxnard Police Explorer Program provides a combination of education, training, and practical competitive recreational activities for youth between the ages of fourteen to twenty-one years of age.  This year’s group started with 39 recruits, of whom 34 will graduate tomorrow after 150-hours of Academy hours.  “We had nearly 50 instructors teach at this year’s academy, including the SEU/SWAT, K9, Narcotics, Robbery, Gangs, Graffiti, Domestic Violence, and outside agencies,” said Oxnard Police Officer and  Explorer Advisor Jacob Jundef. 
[Note: This may be more or just short of the total amount of recruits combined from all the other agencies in the County.]
The program is run under the supervision of Commander Andrew Salinas, Sergeant Humberto Jimenez and 7 associate advisors.
After Saturday’s graduation, the Oxnard Police Department now has a total of 47 Explorers who are vital in assisting the Oxnard Police Department with traffic control for special events, DUI sobriety check-points, Dallas Cowboys camp, and the annual Strawberry Festival.
They continue to their development with bi-monthly training and physical training for competitions across the country.
