The Madison Heights Police Explorer Post attend many different conferences, competitions and seminars. Seminars are usually weekend trips concerning one or two law enforcement subjects. Competitions are set up as follows:
An explorer team (usually 4 explorers) is sent on “calls”. Each “call” is a different event. Some examples include Domestic Violence Intervention, Breaking & Entering Response, Crime Scene Investigation, Accident Investigation, Drug Raids and Traffic/Felony stops. Explorer teams are judged by experienced police officers in each event. At the end of all events points are totaled and trophies are awarded. Other competitions include individual competitions such as pistol marksmanship, driving range or physical agility competitions. Competitions are optional for post members to attend.
