On Monday, October 31st, 2016 Police Explorers visited Lincoln Elementary School in Macomb and passed out Halloween treat bags to children.
The event, which benefited over 600 students within the community, was aimed at promoting Halloween safety. Each treat bag contained a few pieces of candy, safety tips, and a glow bracelet to keep children visible while out trick-or-treating.
This is the second year the Police Explorers have held the event. Programs like these promote civic responsibility and community involvement, major pillars within the Macomb Police Explorer Program.
Police Exploring is a career-oriented volunteer program sponsored by Learning for Life, a subsidiary program of the Boy Scouts of America. The program allows participants the opportunity to explore a career in law enforcement by working with their local law enforcement agencies.
The program educates young men and women in the field of law enforcement through classroom instruction and practical exercises. The program’s curriculum is designed to help Explorers decide if the field of law enforcement is right for them and provide a solid foundation for which they can build their careers.
