SELMA – Police Explorers with the Selma Police Department participated in the first Bringing Broken Neighborhoods Back Together event of 2019 that took place April 13 at Lincoln Park.
Nearly 500 people came out to enjoy a day of fellowship with their neighbors, opportunities to make connections with much-needed services, and hear a positive message of neighbors working together in Selma.
The Explorers assist at many community events, including the Sikh Festival and parade that took place the very next day at the local Selma Gurdwara on Highland Avenue. They also recently completed an assignment at the annual Tulare Ag Show.
The Police Explorer Program is a unique opportunity for the youth of the Selma community to be introduced to the aspect of public service as a career. Many Explorers have gone on to make criminal justice professions a career.
