Our Mission

The Winston-Salem Police Department, by charter through the Boy Scouts of America and the Old Hickory Council, pledges to adhere to and promote the core values set forth in the Explorer Code. Through the department's efforts, Explorer Post 783, serves as a program to mentor our youth, encourage/develop leadership skills, community service awareness, promote fitness, and offer a first-hand view of what law enforcement service entails.

Promoting the Agency

Explorer Post 783 also serves to promote the agency and provide a limited knowledge on the agency and its operations for those aspiring to become law enforcement professionals or obtain positions, both sworn and non-sworn, within the agency in the future.
