Welcome to the homepage of the Montgomery County Police Explorer Post 1986. We are based in Rockville, Maryland and serve under the leadership of Chief J. Thomas Manger.
Since 1974, when Sgt. Harry Geehreng organized the Post 1986, Explorers have assisted in countless community base programs, fingerprinted thousands of children, participated in numerous Ride-A-Longs and they have ultimately proved to be a valuable resource to the Montgomery County Department of Police.
- Post 1986 makes every effort to reach every youth in Montgomery County
- Post Advisors provide the best possible training in: arrest and search techniques, crime scene investigation, traffic stops, crime prevention, accident investigation, hostage negotiation, burglary in progress, bomb threat response, white collar crime, emergency field first aid, shoot / don’t shoot and others.
- Explorers are allowed the opportunity to develop their character by perfecting life-skills: leadership, self-confidence, patience, cooperation, perseverance, discipline, and commitment.
- Explorers are also allowed to develop inter-personal skills: team building, conflict resolution, anger and stress management
- Ultimately, Explorers learn about law enforcement as a career choice but they also display a tremendous spirit of community involvement and civic duty.
