The Los Banos Explorer Post #461 is always seeking motivated applicants for the program. The Explorer program has provided young men and women an opportunity to see the inner workings of the CHP and to make lifelong friendships. Through the program, young adults ages 15-20 attend training sessions, work in the CHP office, ride along with patrol officers, participate in community events, and attend Explorer competitions state wide. All of this is geared towards preparing them for a successful career in the CHP. The Los Banos Post contributes community service hours, assisting at local events such as the Los Banos Tomato Festival and Merced County Spring Fair.
To join our post, please contact the Los Banos CHP office at (209) 826-3811.
Several of our longest tenured Explorers aged out as Explorers and are in the hiring process to become California Highway Patrol Officers. At this time, we are actively recruiting new Explorers to join the Los Banos Post.
