The South Sacramento Area Explorer Post 252 was established in May 2002 with 10 Explorers, and we currently have 34 active Explorers serving within our post. Since its inception, Explorer Post 252 has had the proud distinction of seeing 12 of its members graduate from the CHP Academy, all of whom are still serving as officers with one of the most prestigious and well-respected law enforcement agencies in the world - the California Highway Patrol. Our Explorers are given many opportunities to participate in tactical training sessions, ride with patrol officers, participate in community events, and attend Explorer competitions. Along the way, our Explorers are completely welcomed into the CHP family as they learn the tenets of "CHP PRIDE": Courage - Honesty - Professionalism - Principles - Respect - Integrity - Dedication - Esprit de corps! The South Sacramento Area Explorer Post 252 is continuously seeking motivated applicants for the program. For further information, please send an email inquiry to 252Explorer@chp.ca.gov. You can also contact the CHP South Sacramento Area Office at (916) 681-2300, or come to the office at 6 Massie Court in Sacramento during business hours and ask to speak with an Explorer Advisor.
