The Wausau Police Department Explorer Post #0442 was very active during 2013 and 2014. The Explorer Post allows youth between the ages of 14-21 years old to learn about law enforcement and is a very unique hands-on experience. Post meetings were held two times a month and explorers learned about a wide variety of topics including ethics, traffic stops, and responding to many different kinds of calls for service.

In both 2013 and 2014, explorer post members assisted the Emergency Police directing traffic at the Rib Fest and Balloon Rally. The explorers also organized a team to raise money and participate in the Light the Night fundraiser to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

In 2013 and 2014 the explorers participated in the WI Law Enforcement Explorer Advisors Association statewide competition. During the competition, the explorers participated in numerous events including conducting traffic stops, crime scene response, responding to a burglary in progress, and crisis negotiations. During the 2013 conference one of our teams placed 3rd in responding to a Burglary in Progress and 2014 conference one of our teams placed 3rd in Crime Scene Search.

In both 2013 and 2014 the explorers were giving the opportunity to go to Camp Tesomas in Rhinelander. During the camp, explorers worked on team building, worked on target practice, rode ATV’s, and participated in many other fun activities.
