Parsippany Police Explorers Tour Metlife Stadium

PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Police Explorers were very fortunate to see what it is like to provide security for very large special events at Metlife Stadium.

The crew was greeted at the gate by Retired Chief of Detectives Morris County Prosecutor Office Joseph Devine and New Jersey State Police, Meadowlands Station Commander, Lieutenant Peter Velez.

After a very informative security briefing by Lt. Velez the Explorers they off to see the “good stuff” and explored behind the scenes of Metlife Stadium.

When you take a look at our pictures, you’ll see it’s quite evident we have more Giants fans. Sorry to the Jets and they definitely checked out their operation also. They finished the tour with a full-out charge onto the field. Enjoy the pics and if anyone wants to stop by and see the operation they will be having a holiday party and meeting on December 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room at Parsippany Police Headquarters.

To be a member of the Post you have to be between 14 and 20 years old, pass a background check, and agree to strict paramilitary rules and regulations.

Exploring is a nationally recognized career education program chartered through Learning for Life and the Boy Scouts for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years old. The purpose of the Parsippany Police Explorer Program is to provide information and experiences to young men and women who are interested in a possible law enforcement career. To accomplish this, PTHPD Explorer Post #131 utilizes a hands on training approach while providing curriculum and experiences that help young people mature and learn lifelong leadership skills, while establishing an awareness of the challenges of law enforcement. Post meetings are held twice per month, where Explorers practice military drill, learn about law enforcement topics, develop teamwork through problem solving, and regularly participate in community service details. Membership within the program is contingent upon the Explorer adhering to the rules and regulations found within the Parsippany Police Explorer Manual and the paramilitary organizational style approach.
