2nd place in Crime Scene Search
3rd place in Crisis Intervention (hostage)
4th place in Burglary in Progress

Explorer Alyssa Lee was chosen as the recipient of the memorial scholarship, and also scored first in the police entrance exam event.
"On behalf of all the Explorer advisors we want to thank the Fairfield Police Department for supporting this great program," said Officer Kellum. "A special thanks also to all of the many officers who share their knowledge with the Explorers during the training meetings."
