SAN ANTONIO - Oct. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- The Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council in conjunction with the South San Antonio Independent School District Police/EMS/Fire Post #2107 proudly host the 6th Annual Alamo Area Law Enforcement Explorer Competition (AALECC) on Saturday, October 19, 2013.  The competition will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Southwest High School located at 11960 Dragon Lane, San Antonio, TX 78252.

Admission to cheer on your favorite Exploring Post is free to the public.  Media is also invited to witness teams battle for champion bragging rights of the largest law enforcement competition in the entire state of Texas.  Over 100 teams from Exploring Posts across Texas and New Mexico nearly made the registration cutoff, as several teams eagerly wait on ‘stand by’ in hope to join the competition.

Exploring is the young adult segment of Learning for Life, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America.  It is open to young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age. The program is career or hobby based.  The Law Enforcement Explorer Posts work with young people with interests in law to develop career skills while having fun.   Explorers are expected to showcase their optimal tactical skills in the areas of:

Academic Challenge
Accident Investigation
Arrest-Search-Seizure
Bicycle Obstacle Course
Bomb Threat
Building Search
Crime Scene Search
Crisis Intervention
Domestic Disturbance
Felony Stop
Foot Pursuit

The San Antonio Rampage hockey team is kicking off the AALEEC by providing discounted tickets to all Explorers and their families for the Friday, October 18, 2013 game.
