Members of the Fort Collins Police Explorer Post attended the Regional Law Enforcement Explorer Conference held last week in Gunnison, Colorado. The conference was attended by several hundred Explorer Scouts throughout the Western United States.
While at the conference, the Explorers participated in a variety of skills competitions mirroring activities performed daily by police officers and earned the following awards:
Troy VanDress - 1st place in Death Investigations
Christina Bartlett - 5th in Death Investigations
Allison Weber - 5th in Passive Resistance DT
RJ Tuttle - 5th in Traffic Stops
Fort Collins Explorers, ages 16 – 21, volunteer their time to learn about the field of law enforcement. For many, this is an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the field of law enforcement as a future career choice. Explorers receive a variety of training and often assist police personnel with traffic control and other non-enforcement functions.
For additional information on the Explorer program, contact Fort Collins Police Services at 221-6555 or visit our webpage at http://www.fcgov.com/police/scouts.php.
