Graduates of the Explorer Program are a step ahead of the game when beginning official police training and examinations.
“Our post has produced two police officers both on patrol,” Parker said. “They breeze right through it.”
The Explorer Post has full department backing from Police Chief Dray Swicord, Maj. John Davis, Lt. Wanda Holsey and officer David McNeely.
Parker credited local business support that made the $3,000 Winterfest trip possible.
“We’ve got a ton of local businesses that support everything that we do,” he said. “There is no way we would have been able to make it without them.”
