Members of the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 29 had the opportunity to attend the 2018 Florida Sheriff’s Explorer Association State Competition. The competition took place in Okaloosa County during the last week of June.
In total, over 300 Explorers representing 26 Explorer Posts from The Florida Sheriff’s Explorer Association competed during the event. Explorers had an opportunity to train and compete in Traffic Stop Scenarios (Unknown/High Risk), Building Clearing Scenario, Active Shooting Scenarios and a Physical Training Obstacle Course.
Our Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that Post 29 took 2nd place in two competitions; Domestic Violence Scenarios and Felony Traffic Stops. In both competitions, Explorers are expected to address the scenarios as if they are a certified law enforcement officer. The scenarios require individual decision making skills as well as team work and communication.
The Explorers had the opportunity to present Sheriff Prummell with their trophies on Tuesday, July 10th.
“I am so proud of this group of young men and women”, stated Sheriff Prummell. “They represent the agency, and our community, with integrity and professionalism. I look forward to their continued success.”
The Explorer Delegates Meetings also offers opportunities for Post Advisers from various counties in Florida to meet and share ideas in helping prepare our future leaders.
Explorers were able to attend the Delegates Meeting thanks to their Community Service efforts during the year and donations from our community.
