The Noblesville Police Dept. has announced that it’s Noblesville Police Explorer post has gained national recognition.

During the week of July 11-16, cadets from the Noblesville Police Explorer Post 130 traveled to Flagstaff, Ariz., to participate and compete in the 2016 National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference, where they placed third overall in the category of Arrest and Search. Other topics included burglary in progress, crime prevention, crime scene search, crisis negotiations, traffic accident investigation and traffic stops, among others.

“This is not only a testament to the hard work and dedication that our members put into the preparation for this event, but it also exemplifies the quality and commitment that they bring to the overall mission and objectives of the explorer program,” said NPD Patrolman Matt Johnston, Explorer program coordinator.

Post 130 was represented by eight explorers during the week and was accompanied by several police officers, who also serve as explorer counselors and mentors, from the Noblesville Police Dept. The two teams that made up Post 130 competed against hundreds of other teams throughout the week in spirited competition.

“This program places significant emphasis on career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education and leadership experience,” NPD Chief Kevin Jowitt said. “This is a tremendous opportunity for law enforcement and our youth to work together to make our community great.”

The Explorer program accepts those between the ages of 14 and 19 years and have completed eighth grade. To learn more, contact Johnston at mjohnston@noblesville.in.us.
