The Riverside Sheriff’s Explorer Post 507 proudly serves the desert communities within the cities of Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, and other communities within Riverside County.  The Explorer Post 507 is stationed at the Palm Desert Sheriff’s Station.  Post 507 has sixteen Explorers in the post.  The Explorers are volunteers and donate their free time to participate and assist in functions and events within Riverside County.  The Explorers also have a dedicated Color Guard which presents the colors at special events when requested by the public.  They also go on police ride-a-longs and assist patrol operations.  These youths range in ages from 14-20 years.

From January 17-19, 2014, the Riverside Sheriff’s Explorer Post 507 from the Palm Desert Station participated in the 16th annual Chandler Tactical Competition hosted by the Chandler Police Department in Chandler, Arizona.  Post 507 was one out of 56 posts participating from all over the United States.  The Chandler Tactical Competition is designed to test an explorer’s knowledge, skills, training, endurance, teamwork, and other law enforcement related skills taught to them by their advisors and other peace officers.
