On April 20, 1999, the Edwardsville City Council approved the request by the Edwardsville Police Department to establish the Edwardsville Police Explorer Post 9999. This program is in conjunction with the National Exploring Program of the Boy Scouts of America. The post is a not-for-profit organization that assists in expanding the interests of the cadets in the field of law enforcement.
The posts advisory committee consists of police officers from the Edwardsville Police Department and concerned citizens of our community.
