Mentoring Services

The Discover Policing Mentoring Center is the home of our online database which allows participants to register as mentors or mentees, search for mentors that meet their needs, and contact potential matches directly. The program began by serving only chiefs from smaller law enforcement agencies, but with the new online system, all ranks and agency types are welcome to apply.
