August 20th, 2013: Law Enforcement Career Exploring- the PROFORCE Academy Explorer Team

The PROFORCE Academy Explorer Team recently placed second in felony vehicle stops, and third in the obstacle course challenge in a regional Law Enforcement Explorer competition in Arlington, Texas.

What is the PROFORCE Academy Explorer Team?

Law Enforcement Career Exploring is typically open to youth ages 14 to 20 years with an interest in learning about or pursuing a career in law enforcement.  The program was founded in July, 1973, as a non-scouting subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America.  The purpose of Law Enforcement Exploring is to provide educational training programs, offer orientation experiences and leadership opportunities, as well as involve young adults in community service activities.

The primary goal of the program is to help the students select a career path within Law Enforcement.  Students receive classroom training, ride-alongs and, as we mentioned above, competitions with other Explorers.  Other training can include tactical training, search and rescue (in some areas of the country), traffic stops, crime scene investigation, negotiations, and many more activities local law enforcement deal with every day.  Including the paperwork.

Popular Law Enforcement Exploring careers include various branches of local police, sheriffs, and highway patrols, correction and probation officers, and Federal Agents.

The Silver City program, the PROFORCE Academy Explorer Team, is operated through the Boy Scouts of America, and is open to Grant, Luna and Hidalgo youth.  The team meets twice a month, and the Post does the best it can to work around school schedules (including extra-curricular activities).  For more information about the program, the competition, or how to get involved, send an email to explorerpost3030@gmail.com.
