In conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America, the Crime Resistance Unit supervises the operation of an Explorer's Unit. The program is open to all youths between the ages of 14 and 20 that have an interest in law enforcement. Meetings are held twice a month. In addition to receiving training in various areas of law enforcement, the Explorers also assist the department at various functions.
In the past, they distributed over 2500 slingers in neighborhoods surrounding the Town's cemeteries, in an attempt to alert the residents to incidents of vandalism. The Explorer Unit received training on how to teach young children about safety. The Explorer Advisors meet monthly with representatives of the Boy Scouts and other Explorer Units to share ideas and plan mutual events. The joint groups facilitated weekend training sessions for Explorers that were very well attended.
The Explorers also assisted with details for Police Day at Pilot Field, a local Air Show and the Annual Boy Scouts of America Lobsterfest. The Post also participated in a training weekend at the Niagara Falls Air Force Base, received training in child safety from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, marched in the 4th of July parade, and participated in National Night Out.
