Police explorer academy held in Fair Lawn

August 7, 2013 by  

The Fair Lawn Police Explorer Post 902 recently graduated six members. It was a week-long program and required participants of the police recruiting scheme to reside at Monmouth University. No doubt the Police Explorers used poster printing and other printing services to announce this special accomplishment of those who attended.

The Law Enforcement Explorer Career Training Academy is designed to give those who attend a unique insight into what being a police officer is like. It is geared towards those aged 14 to 21 who are thinking about a career in law enforcement and want to see what it is all about before committing themselves to it.

The program was created in memory of Mary Ann Collura, a police officer who was shot and killed on April 17, 2003 in the line of duty. Those who attended the academy this year were Breet Salle, Alexander Tredy, Matthew Belmonty, Jeffry Joseph, Justin Lefebvre, and Alexandra Vanni. The six attendees were congratulated on their completion of the course by several police officers, including Glen Cauwels, the Interim Chief of the Fair Lawn Police Department.

Trophies were won by these explorers in several areas of the competition. Lieutenant Alexander Tredy has been an explorer for four years and his completion of the program this year means that he has successfully graduated from the academy.

On August 12 at 7:00 pm, an awards and promotional ceremony will be held to recognize this year’s Explorers’ accomplishments and achievements.
