Skyline College Administration of Justice student, Carlos Sierra Gutierrez was officially pinned with his new badge as did eight other members of Daly City Police Explorer Post #817 at a ceremony honoring the inductees held on September 2, 2019, at the City of Daly City Council Chambers. Carlos is currently studying Administration of Justice at Skyline College and is aspiring to become a Police Officer with the City of Daly City. He has been with the Daly City Police Department Explorer Post for one year.
The Daly City Police Explorer Post #817 is a volunteer program designed for motivated and service oriented young men and women who have an interest in the field of law-enforcement. Explorers attend meetings twice a month where they receive training in all aspects of law enforcement. They participate in ride-alongs with police officers, work with specialized police units, participate in civic functions and community events, receive hands-on training, and network with other Police Explorer Posts.
The Program provides essential learning, with fun-filled and hands-on training designed to promote growth and development, helping to build character and confidence, enhances leadership skills, and gives youth opportunities to serve their community.
To participate Police Explorers must be between the ages of 14 and 21, enrolled in high school or college and maintaining a 2.0 GPA, able to commit to eight hours of service per month after graduating from the Explorer Academy, and be of good moral character.
