The Lompoc Police Explorer Post made history this week.
18 Explorers and five Explorer Advisers competed in 19 events at the Central Coast Explorer Competition in Paso Robles.
They competed against 52 other Explorer groups from California and Nevada and placed third.
This is the first time the Lompoc Explorer Post made it to the top five.
The post won first place in the tug of war and obstacle course challenges. They came out in second place in the female explorer individual obstacle course event and third place in the male explorer individual obstacle course event. The team placed fifth in the relay race.
The Police Explorer Program aims to teach young men and women ages 14 to 20. Explorers are sworn in by police officers and supervised by an adult leader or officer. If you're interested in learning more about the Lompoc Explorer Post, call Officer David Lamar at (805) 736-2341.
