Illinois Law Enforcement State Conference

posted Aug 27, 2015, 12:05 PM by Kevin Bogard
The Grundy County Sheriff’s Explorers had an opportunity to attend the Illinois Law Enforcement Explorer State Conference at Lewis University the week of August 2nd.  While at the conference we had three teams compete in a variety of law enforcement activities ranging from traffic stops and crime scene processing, to building searches and rapid deployment.  On August 7th an awards ceremony was held.  At the ceremony we learned that the team of Tyler Hansen, Tyler Post, and Jordyn Bell took second place in the “Hogan’s Alley” shoot-don’t-shoot competition and fourth place in the team building “Obstacle Course”.  Also winning a team competition was Dave Cronin, Jasmine Sipla, Keaton Cryder, and Noah Brannock who received fourth place in “Court Room Testimony”.  In individual competitions Dave Cronin took fourth place overall in the live fire competition.  We also learned at the ceremony that we were nominated for and voted “Post of the Year” by the Conference Planning Committee.  What an honor this is to know that we are a fairly young post and have earned the respect of advisors around the state.  Congratulations to all of the explorers that attended the conference!
