Ellis County Sheriffs Office

WAXAHACHIE – The Ellis County Sheriffs Office is implementing a Law Enforcement Explorer program it willprovide a positive outlet for young men and women interested in a law enforcement career.

This program provides an opportunity to experience law enforcement from a hand-on approach and afford our deputies a chance to interact with young men and women in our county.

Explorer participants will receive training in all aspects of operations within the Sheriff’s Office.

Ellis County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Explorer Program has created new inroads of understanding between youth, law enforcement and the community.

Deputy Explorers are not just “talkers.”

They receive extensive training and then actively participate in community affairs and non-hazardous law enforcement activities.

What is Law Enforcement Exploring? The Law Enforcement Explorer Program is a Sheriff’s Office youth oriented program.

It is affiliated with the special interest phase of the Boy Scouts of America. It’s primary purpose is to provide, through actual experience, a means by which young men and women may determine if they would like to pursue a career in law enforcement.

The program also provides the Sheriff’s Office with additional human resources and it opens an important avenue of understanding with an energetic, concerned society of young people.

To qualify for the position of Deputy Explorer, a recruit

must have at least a “C” average in high school, be between the ages of 15 and 21 years of age and be of good moral character without any serious arrest record.

Deputy Explorers must meet the same basic physical requirements.

The next step in the selection process involves a passing grade on an oral interview.

Anyone deciding to become a Deputy Sheriff Law Enforcement Explorer and meet the minimum qualifications, contact Deputy Nathan Bickerstaff at nathan.bickerstaff@co.ellis .tx.us or call 972-921-4400.
