Oroville Explorer Post 240 was established October 01, 2014. Since its
inception, the Explorer program has provided young men and women an opportunity
to participate in the inner workings of the CHP, and enjoy the camaraderie of
being part of an organization dedicated to public service. Through the program,
participants attend training sessions, work in the CHP office, ride along with
patrol officers, participate in community events, and attend Explorer
competitions. All of this is geared to instill leadership, commitment,
integrity, and responsibility to young men and woman, and better prepare them to
meet the challenges of the future.
The Oroville Area Explorer Post is
continuously seeking motivated applicants for the program. For further
information, please contact the CHP Oroville Area Office at (530) 538-2700 or
stop by the office at 2072 Third Street in Oroville during business hours and
ask to speak with an Explorer Advisor.
This quarter we attended level 1 training at the CHP academy located in West Sacramento. Training this quarter consisted of training on basic first aid, Felony stops, handcuffing techniques, and academic studies. We also participated in a charity event where the Oroville Explorers assisted with a Chip for Kids bike build.
