During the summer of 2017, select Law Enforcement Explorers will have the unique experience of participating in the National Law Enforcement Exploring Leadership Academies.  The National Law Enforcement Exploring Academy Committee will select thirty Explorers for each academy.  Explorers will list their top academy choices and the Academy Committee will make the academy assignments for the selected Explorers.

The academies will feature programs on the dynamics of leadership, physical training, and law enforcement practices.  The academies will begin with a group meeting on the arrival date.  All Explorers will be assigned a roommate and will be housed at a University, Military Base or FLETC.


Each application will be reviewed by a selection committee comprised of law enforcement representatives from the host agencies.

Thirty Explorers will be selected to attend each Leadership Academy.

Acceptance letters will be mailed to selected Explorers no later than March 31, 2017.
