Pre-Halloween Patrol

October 31, 2008


On October 30th, the police explorers teamed up with the Madison Heights Police Reserves to patrol the streets and to monitor neighborhoods and businesses.  In addition to using patrol vehicles, there were trucks from the DPW that were utilized due to the heavy manpower that evening. All of the recently accepted new explorers learned radio procedures by using the 2 way radio system.  Each explorer kept a shift log and learned about documenting shift activities.  All in all a pretty quite night was reported.
