Proceeds from Explorer card sales will go to fund the Dalton Police Explorers program, which allows young men and young women to gain training and experience in the law enforcement field. The program also provides young people with opportunities for community involvement and development. Program activities center around law enforcement traiing, organized recreational activities, and competitive events. Officer David Saylors currently oversees the program. Explorers must be between 14 and 20 years old, maintain at least a C average while remaining in school until graduation or obtaining a GED, and must attend regularly scheduled meetings which include physical training.
The Dalton Police Department thanks all of the sponsors of the Explorer cards for their generous support of the program.
