MHPDE vs Macomb County Sheriffs Explorers

August 12, 2008

This past weekend, the Madison Heights Police Explorers played a game of baseball with our new friends at the Macomb County Sheriffs Explorers.  Each post was allowed 10 total players including two advisors from each post.  In a fun and exciting game, the MHPDE took an early lead.  The Macomb County Sheriff Explorers steadily caught up.  In the bottom of the 9th, MHPD Explorer Adam Mazur-Baker single handedly made a triple play to end the game with a final score of 17-11.  Both posts had a great time and are planning a future game!  We’d like to thank our friends at the Macomb County Explorers for organizing and setting up this fun event.  We’d also like to thank our own Mike Perez for working with the sheriffs explorers to set up the event and for being a great coach for the MHPDE!

After the game, the MHPDE members celebrated and went back to advisor Scott Bennis & Brianne Bierkamp’s house for a BBQ and pool party.  While we managed to keep everyone alive from drowning a great time was had!

Madison Heights Fireworks Event

July 5, 2008

The city of Madison Heights held its annual Fireworks display in late June.  Thousands of patrons attended to watch the display.  To keep everyone safe through crowd and traffic control, the Madison Heights Police Explorers assisted the Madison Heights Police and the Madison Heights Police Reserves.  Other departments that were present were the DPW and the Fire Department.

The explorers started out with doing walk throughs of the park during the live concerts and carnival rides.  In the evening, each explorer was assigned a traffic position in the area to safely and efficently keep the flow of traffic going.
