The Sheriff’s Office has an Explorer Post for the young adults interested in law enforcement.

The post is chartered with the Boy Scouts of America in Stark County. The post is a division of the Reserve Deputy Program and is supervised by members of the Sheriff’s Reserve Unit.

The Explorers assist the Sheriff’s Office and Reserve Unit at many of the special events throughout the year. They provide tours of the Sheriff’s Office and fingerprinting to young adults and children in Stark County.

The post has approximately twenty Explorers and is always interested in recruiting new members.

Presently we have five deputies with the Sheriff’s Office that began their careers as Explorers and are now employed as full-time deputies.
