They will be provided with a comprehensive understanding of the role of law enforcement in society, the criminal justice system, and various real-life scenario techniques and tactics. 

The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post will always seek excellence. Explorers will be held to a high standard of conduct and must embody integrity, respect, and professionalism. By upholding these high standards, participants in the program demonstrate their commitment to excellence and dedication to the law enforcement profession.
