The Georgetown Police Explorer Post 152 was recognized at the City Council meeting on Tuesday. Exploring is a leadership and skill development program that introduces high school aged students to the field of law enforcement. The Explorer Post 152 trains at weekly meetings and learns to work through various scenarios similar to those encountered by patrol officers. Explorers participate in competitions each year at the local, regional, and state level.
Explorer post members recognized at the meeting included (pictured left to right) Theodore Brown, Maj. Connor Alvarez, Lt. William Woodburn, Cody Johnson, Angela Cabazos, and Christian Franzel. Georgetown police officers who work with the post and were recognized included Officer Trey Walters, Sgt. Erik Grasse, and Officer Sarah Turowski.
Maj. Connor Alvarez with the Explorer post told the City Council and audience that, “We just went to a Harris County competition, and every scenario that we competed in, we placed in. So we represented Georgetown very well. I love Explorers. It has changed my life in many ways. It’s shown me new insight to the career of law enforcement. It’s helped me develop as a leader and as a citizen.”
