Midwest Post 7277 After Training

Explorers from Midwest Post 7277 enjoyed the full day of training this past Saturday. They were treated to frozen yogurt by their advisors. It also looks like they were a bit tired after all the hard work.

Group Explorer Training

Houston Police Explorers from several different posts met last Saturday for a group training at the Houston Police Academy. They learned the proper mechanics of handcuffing and searching, hostage negotiation, bomb threats, misdemeanor and felony traffic stops, and used the "shoot don't shoot" simulator.
