The Charleston County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 555 began in 1976 and has evolved into a very important part of our agency. The program is designed to function under the joint guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America (B.S.A,) and the Sheriff's Office. The purpose of this program is to promote social, recreational and community relations activities for Explorers in addition to the training and educational opportunities they receive in law enforcement.
The Explorer Program is geared for youth aged fourteen to twenty years old. Explorers meet on a weekly basis and these meetings are scheduled so as not to interfere with school. Explorers are required to maintain passing grades in order to remain active with the Post. The training they receive in general Law Enforcement also prepares them for several yearly competitions they attend during the summer months.
