The Clovis Police Department will honor its 24-member Police Explorer Post tonight (1/23) following a banquet at the Clovis Rodeo Hall just south of Clark Intermediate School on Clovis Avenue. During 2015, these young men and women donated more than 3,100 total hours of community service, in addition to training more than 2,000 hours (an average of more than 83 hours per Explorer).
The post offered its support for almost 50 events and special details this past year.
The Explorers’ motto is “Lead The Way,” and the motto of the organization is “To encourage youth within the City of Clovis to consistently demonstrate behavior that produces social, emotional, educational and economic success.” It is a non-profit, volunteer organization that relies on generous community donations to send these dedicated youth to camps and law enforcement competitions. In 2015, the Post brought home 9 trophies from 2 regional tournaments.
Eleven Clovis Explorers will receive awards in the categories of tenure, community service, most community service hours, honor guard, perfect attendance, top gun, Advisor’s Award and Explorer of the Year. The banquet is a way to thank the Explorers for their time, dedication and service to the community. (The banquet is closed to the public.)
