THE EXPLORER PROGRAM
The mission of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) Explorer Program is to develop young people into responsible and
productive citizens through discipline and a commitment to serving their community.
The CHP Explorer Program offers a unique and challenging opportunity to young men and women to become an integral
part of the Department's operations, and experience what a career in law enforcement would be like. Successful
completion of the Explorer Program can open many doors and present many opportunities for the youth of tomorrow,
especially for an Explorer who is planning to make the CHP a career.
