Douglas Explorers compete in California

Staff Reports

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Explorer’s POST No. 2105 competed in the 2016 Central Valley Law Enforcement Explorer Competition in Hanford, Calif. The Explorers competed against 25 other California law enforcement agencies over the course of a two day mentally and physically challenging event.

This young team, most of whom is their second time competing, did an outstanding job overall and represented Douglas County very well. They had the opportunity to meet over three hundred other youth who share similar interests and goals, so they had the ability to do some networking. One of the most memorable moments occurred when our Explorer Post teamed up with the Explorers from Lemoore, Calif. and worked on officer down rescues. The Explorer’s did well dealing with this particularly stressful situation and mostly importantly they learned to work through the challenges and obstacles put before them.

The Explorers consider themselves one big family and they love, honor and respect one another and their commitment to law enforcement and what it represents. The Explorers mentioned they were grateful for being able to compete in such a memorial events. The Explorer Post thanks those in the community who supports their endeavors. The Explorer Post advisors are Deputies Teresa Duffy and Chris Wiggins. Contact Deputies T. Duffy or C. Wiggins at (775) 782-9941 if you are between the ages of 14-20 years and interested in becoming an Explorer.
