Reference:                  Portsmouth Police Explorer Competition

This past weekend, Feb. 21-22, Portsmouth Police Explorer, Captain Kyle Brake participated as part of the New England Regional Law Enforcement Explorer Association, regional explorer team in a SWAT competition held in Federal Way, Washington.  Seventeen other teams from Washington and California also competed.  Each team participated in 9 events from drug raids to felony motor vehicle stops.  Each team consisted of 4 to 6 law enforcement explorers.  The New England Regional Law Enforcement Explorer Association team consisted of 5 members from CT and one from New Hampshire. 

The New England Regional Law Enforcement Explorer Association team finished fifth out of 17.  This is the first year that they have competed.  Next year we are looking to compete with a full Portsmouth team.   

The Portsmouth Police Explorers volunteer during police and community events, receive classroom and hands-on instruction from Portsmouth Police Officers and participate in camping and outdoor team building trips.   Detective Robert Munson is the coordinator of the program.  Anyone interested in learning more about joining the Explorers can contact Det. Munson at rmunson@cityofportsmouth.com, or call at 610-7506.
