The West Valley Explorer Post 580 has been serving the San Fernando Valley since the early 1990's. The CHP Explorer program allows young men and women ages 15-21 to be an integral part of the department's operations, and experience what a career in law enforcement will be like. The objective of this program is to teach leadership, integrity, commitment and responsibility so that they may better serve their communities.
Through the program, Explorers attend training sessions, work in the CHP area office, ride along with patrol officers, participate in community events, assist in D.U.I. checkpoints, traffic control and attend Explorer competitions.
The West Valley Area Explorer Post is actively seeking motivated applicants for the program. For further information please contact CHP West Valley Area Office at (818)-888-0980 or stop by the office at 5825 De Soto Ave, Woodland Hills, CA 91367 during business hours (8am-5pm).
