Law Enforcement Explorer Post 137 was established in 1997 and is sponsored by the Tift County Sheriff's Office. Membership is available to anyone who is interested in Law Enforcement and is between 15 to 21 years old. Individuals who are 14 years old and have completed the 8th grade are also eligible for membership. Explorers meet twice a month and receive instructions on topics dealing with many areas of law enforcement including traffic patrol, domestic violence, and tactical operations.  After completing a probationary period and receiving specific training Explorers may particaipate in the "ride along" program in which they accompany a Deputy on patrol.

In addition, the Explorer Post attends an annual event known as "Winterfest" which takes place in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  "Winterfest" is the largest gathering of Explorers and Venture Scouts in the United States. Explorers compete in events such as vehicle stops, accident investigations, crime scene processing and active shooter. Training for this event takes place throughout the year. Explorers also, participate in service projects to benefit the community and provide support at events sponsored by the South Georgia Council, of the Boy Scouts of America.  Membership is open to both young men and women who are considering a career in law enforcement, or simply have an interest in learning more about the Tift County Sheriff's Office. For information concerning scheduled meetings, additional membership requirements and other Explorer Post activities contact Lieutenant Jeff Scott at (229) 388-6021.
