Police Explorers Post 57-08


The Plumstead Township Police Department Explorer's Post 57-08 was established on November 3, 2013. The Law Enforcement Explorers program is designed to help young adults of the Central Bucks Communities to make a more informed decision about future careers and determine if a particular career is right for them. Exploring is not about lectures and slides shows; it's about gaining practical experience in a career field. Exploring area of emphasis are career opportunities, leadership experiences, life skills, citizenships and character education.

The program has been dedicated in the honor of fallen hero, Officer Joseph E. Hanusey III, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on May 18 2002 in an auto accident. It is through the way in which Ofc. Hanusey lived his life and served his community, especially the youth in which we draw our inspiration and our organization's core values:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Honor
  • Discipline
  • Loyalty
  • Courage

The Post follows the same rank and file structure as a police department and cadets share the same experiences as uniformed officers. We meet every other week for 90 minutes for our meetings, as well as engaged in a variety of ongoing community service and fundraising activities. At the conclusion of the school year the Post holds an Academy Week, Monday thru Friday, in which cadets have the opportunity to gain even greater experience of law enforcement 

2015 Explorers Meeting Dates:
The Explorers will hold their meetings every other Tuesday of the month, beginning January 6th at 5:00 p.m. at the Township Building.
