Explorer's Post 222 & 223

The Covington Police Department’s Ex­plorer program is designed to educate young people on the purpose, mission and objectives of law enforcement agencies while providing an opportunity for service, practical experiences, competi­tion and recreation. Exploring is learning for life’s career-education program for young men and women ages 12 to 21 years old. The program is designed to provide opportunities for character development, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism with the goal of helping members of the program become better citizens and community members. The program also contributes to the healthy development of today’s young adults by providing them with the environment, resources and relationships they need to learn and grow.

The Covington Police Explorer pro­grams are headed by Sgt. Contrareus Robinson; he is assisted by CSR Sheri­ca Tate and Officer Michael Canty, and currently there are 19 students in the programs combined. There is a rank structure within the group com­prised of one Chief, one Major, two Captains, two Lieutenants, four Ser­geants and four Corporals.
