NCSO ‘Explorers Post’ Youth Program Planned for Niagara Falls

Sheriff Michael J. Filicetti announced that the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting an Explorers Post in partnership with Superintendent John Faso and the Niagara Falls Police Department. In years past, this program was hosted at the Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Filicetti said, “We are pleased to be able to move this session to Niagara Falls so that we can expand our pool of interested applicants who might not otherwise be able to arrange travel to attend in Lockport.”

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office Explorers Post 2911 allows young adults, ages 16 through 20 years, to learn about the many facets of law enforcement. The Explorers will meet every Monday evening for 14 weeks during the school year, where classes are operated in a paramilitary style and filled with relevant content for those interested in a law enforcement career. Students gain knowledge and hands-on experience during trainings and working events.

The spring session of this program will be held at the Packard Court Community Center in the City of Niagara Falls. All CDC and NYS guidelines must be followed, and participation is limited. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to learn directly from certified Academy Instructors from the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and the Niagara Falls Police Department.

If you are interested in learning more about the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office Explorer’s Post 2911, join them at their ‘Welcome Night’ scheduled for Monday March 29, 2021 at 7 pm within the Packard Court Community Center, 4300 Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls. Please contact Lieutenant Daniel Zimmerman at 716-438-3310, or email ncsd@niagaracounty.com to reserve your place. A reservation is mandatory to ensure compliance with capacity and social distancing orders. Youth aged 16 or 17 years old should be accompanied by one parent/guardian for authorization signatures.
