Explorers compete in Sacramento

Four Explorers from the South Lake Tahoe Police Department recently attended the Western Region Police Explorer Conference and Competition at the California Highway Patrol Academy in Sacramento.

The Explorers attended seminars on everything from how to take a police written exam to a demonstration of high speed driving. Competitions included a DUI traffic stop, a traffic collision investigation, a high-risk building search, a team tug-of-war and an obstacle course. The local four-person team placed fourth in the building-search competition. Team members were D.J. Vreeken, Matt Rempt, Troy Sutton and Jonathan Coats. This was the first competition for the team, which was pleased with the result since the conference is attended by approximately 600 Explorers and advisors from all over the western United States.

The South Lake Tahoe Police Explorer Post consists of approximately 20 young men and women ages 14 to 21. Officers Rebecca Inman and David Allen serve as advisers and other members of the police department assist with tactical training.

For information, call Officers Inman or Allen at (530) 542-6100.
