The Chattanooga Police Department Explorers traveled to Savannah, GA, to compete in the Summerfest Explorer Competition. This event is sponsored by the Coastal Empire Council and the Chatham County Sheriffs’ Office. They competed in four separate events against 11 other Explorer teams.
The Chattanooga Police Explorers placed first in the Escaped Inmate scenario, second in DUI Traffic Stop, second in Suspicious Person, and third in Warrant Service.
Officials said, "The young people of the Explorer Team represented the city of Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Police Department with pride and professionalism."
The Chattanooga Police Explorers are actively looking for young men and women, between the ages of 13 and 21, who have an interest in law enforcement as a career and are willing to accept the challenge of being a Police Explorer.
