Newark Police & Aetna HHL Create Joint Public Safety Explorer Post

The Newark Police Department and AETNA Hose, Hook and Ladder Company are excited to announce a new program for high school youth who are interested in a career in public safety.  The Public Safety Explorer Post will give youth hands on experience in fire fighting, emergency medical services, police investigations, forensic investigations, crash investigations, patrol procedures, DUI investigation and more.

The program is designed for high school age youth attending school or residing in the Newark area.  The group will generally meet about once per month.

The program will kick off with an information session open house on Thursday October 27 from 6:30 pm to 8:30pm at AETNA Station 7 on Thorn Lane in Newark.

Any questions can be directed to Corporal Adam Mease or Irene Lavita-Harris.
