The King and Queen and Essex County Sheriff’s Offices partner together to launch a regional Law Enforcement Explorer’s Post Program. The Explorer’s Post held its first introductory meeting at King and Queen Central High School where 8 potential Explorer’s Post members and their parents attended. To learn what the post was all about. Sheriff W.A. Holmes of Essex and Sheriff J.R. Charboneau of King and Queen where on hand to speak to participants and let those in attendance know they are dedicated to the Youth and fostering positive relationships with the youth of the two counties. After an information session the participants were given a taste of what activities the post will present to members. The first lesson and demonstration was firearms safety and the proper handling and firing of a weapon. Participants where allow to fire a 9mm simunition pistol at a target under a controlled setting.

The Explorer’s Post will consist of participants from the two counties or others that are 14 to 20 years old. The post will meet weekly while school is in session. The program will consist of classroom and practical exercises using police topics and techniques. To include DUI, Handcuffing, Firearms, Defensive Tactics, Crime Scene Processing and much more. The members will be allowed to ride along with deputies in each county and participate in community events to include fairs, parades and sporting events.

Exploring is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America and helps to train young adults to become ethical leaders and positive citizens all while fostering a positive relationship with the regional law enforcement officers. This post is unique in that cooperation between the two agencies allow a larger pool of resources for the Explorer’s Post members. The next meeting will be on March 21, 2019 at the King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office at 6:30pm. This meeting will be the planning meeting for the Post’s members to take an active role in the planning and implementation of future meetings, topics, location and times, there will also be a fun training exercise for participants. For more information you may contact your local Sheriff’s Office. Any young adult 14 to 20 may join and it is not restricted to Essex or King and Queen County residence.
