In December, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Explorers went to the WLEEA (Washington Law Enforcement Explorer Advisors) Academy in Yakama and made a great showing. Explorers come from all over Washington State to compete at the Winter Academy and the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post sent 10 Explorers. They all did an outstanding job and 3 of them won awards!!

Spokane County Explorer Bryson Trautman received 2nd Place in Physical Fitness

Mike Baughn received 1st Place in Firearms

Devin Roach received Top Cop for APD
This is the highest award given at the Winter Academy for the Explorers. Devin competed against 12 of the best Explorers in Washington State for this award. Great Job Devin!!

What is the Explorer Program?
Exploring is a co-educational program developed and supervised by the Sheriff’s Department providing an opportunity for young adults to explore a potential career in Law Enforcement. Becoming an Explorer allows young men and women between the ages of 16 and 21 the opportunity to learn about a career in criminal justice while accumulating valuable volunteer hours for the Sheriff’s Department. Please check out their website if you would like additional information about joining!!
