6th Annual Alamo Area Law Enforcement Explorer Competition Supports Youth
Event Supports Youth and Team Building while serving as Open House for students interested in Law Enforcement and Technology
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:
Bicycle Obstacle Course
Crime Scene Search
Missing Persons (new this year)
Robbery in Progress
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.
