Explorer Competitions


2012 Central Coast Law Enforcement
Explorer Competition

The thirteenth annual Central Coast Law Enforcement Explorer Competition was held on September 21-23, 2012 in Paso Robles, CA. This competition is designed to test the strengths and limitations of a person's intelligence, personality, demeanor and physical abilities, as well as dedication and conviction to the explorer program. Explorers are given the opportunity to test their skills in real life situations including Felony Stops, DUI Stops, Vehicle Searches, Building Searches, and a Domestic Violence situation, just to name a few. These events were held in daylight and night time scenarios. The competition tested the explorer's physical abilities and teamwork through obstacle courses, physical agility, and a tug of war. Mental abilities were tested through a variety of events including a medical scenario, a law enforcement entry level written exam and an oral board panel. Five scholarships were awarded to successful applicants and competition participants and trophies were awarded to 1st through 5th place in each event.

There were over 400 explorers in attendance with over 100 advisors, representing 43 explorer posts; CHP had 83 explorers and 31 advisors. Congratulations to all of the California Highway Patrol Explorer Post who participated in the 2012 Central Coast Explorer Competition. The CHP was well represented at this year's competitions with 10 posts from 7 divisions. CHP explorers trained countless hours in preparation for this year's competition and participated 21 different events. CHP did not leave the competition empty handed.
