Our Mission


We as Explorer Post #2236 strive to learn the skills necessary for a career in law enforcement. It will be our focus to foster positive character traits such as honesty, respect, leadership, and discipline. The post will develop and maintain positive relationships with not only the Surprise Police Department but also the community.
