Washtenaw County Sheriff's Law Enforcement Explorer Scout Program
Beginning in 2018, Post 46 began supporting the local Washtenaw County Sheriff's Law Enforcement Explorer Scout Program. The Post recently donated $1,000 toward a total of $5,000 to the program. The check will help offset costs for new uniforms and training for these Scouts in Troop 0911.
Explorer classroom instruction is provided by sworn law enforcement personnel, guest speakers, and senior Explorers at weekly meetings. Through prior training and experience, they teach Explorers techniques and skills in law enforcement disciplines ranging from crime prevention to crime scene investigation. From participating in these weekly meetings and community service events, Explorers gain valuable interpersonal and life skills. Washtenaw County Sheriff Explorers receive training that is similar to what sworn law enforcement personnel receive. These skills are then put to the test in a variety of scenarios at state and national competitions. Some topics that Explorers are trained in include the following: - Arrest and Search Techniques - Building Searches - Crime Scene Investigation/Evidence Processing - Criminal/Constitutional Law - Domestic Violence Intervention - Emergency First Aid and CPR - Patrol Techniques - Radio Codes and Procedures - Report Writing - Traffic Accident Investigation - Traffic/Crown Control - Traffic Stops
