Two Mustang sophomores, Tristan Adams and Bryce Henry, will represent Marble Falls in the first Police Explorers Competition February 11th and 12th in Gatlinburg Tennessee. The Mustangs will join six other Burnet County students from Faith Academy and Burnet High School to compete in the Police and Fire Rescue Explorer Competition.
“We started the program in 2013 to teach interested youth about different aspects of Law Enforcement,” said Burnet Police Department Captain, Jason Davis. “Bryce and Tristan joined Post 300 approximately two years ago and have been active in the program.”
The competitors will demonstrate their skills in simulated DUI Arrests, Field Sobriety Tests, Felony Traffic Stops, and Suspicious Death and Bomb Threat scenarios.
“We are so excited to compete in Tennessee,” said Henry. “We’ll have to be on our game in our interviewing skills as well as the procedures for the competition events.”
Adams quickly added that the Explorers program is looking for new students interested in Law Enforcement as a career. The Police Explorers meet on Tuesdays from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Meeting Center on Jackson Street in Burnet. Participants must be 14 years of age, maintain a C average, and must attend regularly scheduled meetings, including physical training.
