Harris County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 43

Harris County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 43 The Harris County Sheriff's Office Explorer Program is an official department program and is supported through the use of department personnel and facilities.
(8)

The program is designed to acquaint young people with the nature and complexity of law enforcement. It encourages them to seek careers as deputies. It also affords the department an opportunity to evaluate each Explorer prior to his/her application for employment as a deputy if they choose to pursue a career in the Harris County Sheriff's Office. The Harris County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post43 was born October 2011, as part of the Sheriff’s initiative to get youth more involved with and aware of local law enforcement. The program itself is designed to train youth, ages 14-20 in the principles of law enforcement. Post 43 meets every Wednesday night at the Harris County Jim Fonteno Courthouse Annex on Wallisville Road. The typical night at Post 43 includes approximately an hour of classroom training, where youth are educated on various aspects of law enforcement being taught by the Deputy Advisors, followed by an hour or more of scenario training, where the Explorers take their classroom training and practically apply it in training scenarios very similar to those used in an actual police academy. Some of these scenarios include (but aren’t limited to): domestic disturbances, felony traffic stops, hostage/crisis negotiation, robbery in progress, search/arrest warrant, active shooter, crime scene investigation (CSI), bomb threat, officer down, gang activity, and numerous other scenarios that the police deal with on a daily basis. The meeting concludes with an hour or so of physical training, which is structured after the physical training regimen used in the actual police academy the Advisors attended. Post 43 also actively competes in competitions amongst hundreds of other Explorer Posts from all over Texas and even other states. Post43 has seen great success at competition, which included bringing, home two 2ndplace trophies and one 3rd place trophy from its last competition in April. However, the cost to attend these competitions is very high, and what can’t come from the county’s budget comes from the Advisors’ own pockets. Post 43’s next competition is in October, right around its 1 year anniversary. Post 43 is reaching out to any and all available sources to help fund its trip to Round Rock, as well as funding for future events and equipment. Any funds received goes towards transportation, food, gun belts, red guns used in scenarios, uniforms, and various other costly necessities that keep Post 43 alive and successful in training.
