Clarksville, TN – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) would like to congratulate Explorers Post 600 on their graduation from Explorer Academy.
The Explorer Basic Academy is a 2-week, 72-hour course, which is designed to replicate the training and education received at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy in Nashville.
Explorers are provided an in-depth itinerary of classroom and hands-on training.
Explorers received instruction on traffic stops; building searches and room clearing; police equipment and weapons handling; formations drill and ceremony; patrol response to burglary, domestic violence, alarms, and suspicious activity; active shooter training; constitutional law; arrest procedures and evidence collection; and Tennessee criminal law.
Additionally, Explorers participated in physical training throughout both weeks and completed an obstacle course and physical fitness test.
The Law Enforcement Explorers are part of the Boy Scouts of America Learning for Life Program. The Program helps youth prepare for a future in law enforcement through community service, confidence-building activities, and hands-on experience.
The program is open to young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20 who have completed the 8th grade. Advisors to the Explorer Program are full-time, P.O.S.T. Certified Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. These Deputies organize all aspects of training and education for the Explorers with guidance and assistance from their training division.
