Police Explorers are involved in training sessions on a weekly basis which familiarizes the members with all aspects of law enforcement; including patrol procedures, traffic stops, arrest procedures, traffic and criminal law, criminal investigations, traffic crash investigations and firearms safety. Training is reinforced during annual local and state competitions, attended by the Miramar Police Explorers.
The City of Miramar and community organizations call upon the Police Explorers to assist with traffic direction and parking control at events. Police Explorers are not used in assignments requiring police authority but are used to assist the community and police department under the direction and supervision of police department employees. The program brings the explorer into direct contact with members of the Police Department through details, meetings and the ride along program.
In recent years, the Miramar Police Department has hired a number of individuals as police officers who received their first exposure to law enforcement through an explorer program.
