The Explorer Program is the longest serving of three volunteer divisions within the Sheriff's Office. The Explorer post operates year round, and many of our post members have five or more years of service with the Sheriff's Office.

Volunteers are an important part of the daily operations of the Lake County Sheriff's Office. Every department within the Sheriff's Office uses volunteers to help with tasks from data entry, answering phones, typing, filing, assisting in research, daily senior citizen assurance calls and greeting the public.
