Welcome to Hazelwood Explorer POST 9217


Thanks for visiting the official website for the Hazelwood Police Explorer Post 9217. Our post was established in the summer of 2003. We originally started with 7 members and two advisors, however, over the years the post has grown to 18 explorers with 10 advisors and has put countless explorers through the police academy to start careers in law enforcement. Several explorers have reitred from the post and have become police officers, others are dispatchers and some are correction officers. We believe that if an explorer is accepted into the post and completes the program giving 100% effort and dedication, they will have a high success rate when entering into the law enforcement career field.
