The first Explorer Post in the history of the CHP office in Stockton CA was established in February 2013. Since its inception, the Explorer program has provided young men and women an opportunity to partake 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 women, and better prepare them to meet the challenges of the future.
The Stockton Area Explorer Post is continuously seeking motivated applicants for the program. For further information, please contact the CHP Stockton Area Office at (209) 938-4800 or stop by the office at 2720 Wilcox Rd Stockton CA 95215 during business hours and ask to speak with an Explorer Advisor.
