Law Enforcement Exploring is a program sponsored by local law enforcement agencies to provide career information to students between the ages of 14 (completed 8th grade) and 20. It also provides the structure and resources needed for these young adults to make ethical choices and to achieve their full potential as individuals.
These students learn first hand the duties and responsibilities of police officers. By bringing interested youth and police officers together on a regular basis, the explorers are able to apply the information and tactics they learn in mock situations.
On June 26th, the Orono Police Explorers attend a conference with several other police explorer programs including New Brighton, Stearns County, State Patrol, Blaine, Maple Grove, Anoka, Woodbury and Brooklyn Center. At this conference the Orono Explorers did an outstanding job. They completed in 6 events placing 1st in three events and second in two of the events. Great job! We are very proud of our Police Explorer program and the students that did so well.
