The Somerset Police Department sponsors a Law Enforcement Explorer Post. Post 516 is made up of 20 young men and women ages 14 to 21, who have an interest in public service.

The explorer post was established at Somerset P.D. in the late 1970’s. The Post serves the community by assisting the police department in ways such as traffic control at special functions and by assisting with public safety programs given by the department. In addition, they are trained in all aspects of law enforcement. They are given the opportunity to show off their training at competitions held annually. Officer Hoseclaw is in charge of the Police Explorers.
