Pasco Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 916 was busy during June! Explorers took part in two competitions recently and earned a state championship in the process!
Explorer Post 916 competed in the 2023 Florida Association of Police Explorers State Competition last week. Throughout the week, Explorers competed in events such as color guard, drill team, 9mm pistol shooting and scenario-based categories. Post 916’s state team responded to scenarios that imitated real-life calls-for-service and were evaluated by judges on areas such as officer safety, communication skills, teamwork, tactics and decision making, knowledge of legal guidelines and state statutes, general law enforcement procedures and uniform appearance. The scenario categories included crime scene investigation, traffic stop, officer needs assistance, crisis intervention, in-progress, search and arrest and a tie-breaker.
