Costs and Uniforms
One of the most often asked questions is, "Does the program cost anything to join?" The basic answer is, "No." The program is free to you. Even though there are fees and insurance that must be paid, they are paid for by the Explorers Post. You will need to pay for some uniform items (e.g. boots, PT shorts, uniform T-shirts). If these items cannot be purchased because money is an issue, the items can be provided by the Post on a case by case basis. You will not be denied if you cannot afford to purchase these uniform items.

Department uniforms, jackets, leather gear, handcuffs, whistles, lanyards, and flashlights are all issued and do not need to be purchased.
