Montgomery Police Explorers Win National Award
Members of the Montgomery County Police Explorer program took the top price in the Domestic Crisis Intervention competition held at The National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, from July 14 through 18.
The Montgomery County Police Explorer Program is part of a national program intended to assist young adults in learning about the many aspects of law enforcement as a career. Every second year, the Explorers are provided the opportunity to test their knowledge and skills at the National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference. This year, Montgomery County Police Explorers and approximately 3,500 other Explorers from the United States and Puerto Rico attended the national conference.
The Montgomery County Police Explorer members took part in eight team competitions during the conference. The members placed first in the Domestic Crisis Intervention competition and second place in Crime Prevention. Explorer Walter Platero also placed second in his age group in the individual physical agility competition.
The Montgomery County Police Explorer Program is always looking for young adults (ages 14 to 20) to join the group. For more information on the Explorer Program and how to apply to the group, click here.
