Tahoe youths participate in Police Explorers competition
Three South Lake Tahoe Police Explorers – Dillon Sullivan, Cameron Allen and Kyra DiSilva – participated in a three-day competition Oct. 12-14 at the Central Coast Police Explorer Competition in Paso Robles, Calif.
They were involved in numerous police-related events, such as vehicle stops, crime-scene investigation, suspicious-person calls and a team relay and obstacle course.
The three-member team was led by veteran South Lake Tahoe Police Officer Rebecca Inman, who is the youths’ Post Explorer adviser.
DiSilva, a senior at South Tahoe High School, competed against 37 other Explorers to win the top award in the scholarship competition. She won the top scholarship award of $2,000 for her outstanding achievement in school, her oral interview and the essay she wrote when submitting her application for the process.
The SLTPD Explorer program provides an opportunity for young people ages 14 to 21 to become active in their community while learning about law enforcement.
The program is self-funded, so donations are welcome.
Additional questions about the SLTPD Explorer program should be directed to Officer Inman at (530) 542-6110.
