Explorers work security details where they perform police activities, such as traffic control/parking and overnight security. Explorers also do community service activities such as parades, fingerprinting, and bike registrations.


The Venice Police Explorer Post 86 is a member of the Association of Police Explorers. They attend delegate meetings all over the state of Florida and compete against other Explorer posts for state and national ranking.
