North America's Premier International Resort Community

Eagle County Explorers Program

The Explorer Program’s 39 members meet regularly throughout the county to learn verbal de-escalation, traffic control and more from advisers with the Vail, Avon, Eagle and Basalt Police Departments.

One Commander, one Deputy Chief, and two Sergeants provide an overview of the law enforcement profession to these young adults from 14-21 years of age.

The program operates a Facebook page to keep members involved and parents informed. Contact Vail Police Commander Daric Harvey at 970-474-3433 or, or check out the Explorer Facebook Page for more information.
