Join the Law Enforcement Exploring Program!

The Dubuque Police Department is excited to offer a program to provide students  with information about careers in all types of law enforcement, answer any questions you may have regarding the profession, and to participate in hands-on projects demonstrating law enforcement principles. In addition, by participating in the program, you are eligible to apply for seven scholarships given only to Law Enforcement Exploring participants!

The first meeting will acquaint you with the Exploring program and answer any questions you may have regarding the activities and information provided. There will be an overview of the facilities and you may acquaint yourself with the different law enforcement divisions within the department. Parents are welcome to attend the first meeting.

You'll have the ability to see the various career positions within the field. It is also a great way to build your college resume, have fun, and meet new friends.

  • Crime Scene Investigation
  • Patrol Techniques
  • Fingerprinting
