The Tyler Police Explorer Post #310 traveled to Richardson, Texas this past weekend to participate in the 2008 Texas State Explorer Competition, sponsored by the Texas Law Enforcement Advisors Association. 

Eighty explorer teams took part in the competition, including two teams from out of state - the Arizona DPS and Tulsa Police Department.   

The Tyler Police Explorer Post brought back medals for first place in crime prevention, first place in burglary in Progress and third place in arrest and search. 

Explorer Post #310 wants to represent the City of Tyler and the Tyler Police Department at the National Law Enforcement Explorer Conference in July, 2008 in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  The Explorer post will need to raise around $4,000 dollars to travel to the national competition and are seeking donations to help fund the trip.  

Post #310 will be competing against over 3,000 Explorers from the United States and its Territories. If you are interested in helping these young men and women, you may contact Lt. Diannia Jackson at the Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1016.
