Explorer Competitions


2013 Central Coast Law Enforcement
Explorer Competition

The fourteenth annual Central Coast Law Enforcement Explorer Competition was held on September 20-22, 2013 in Paso Robles, CA. The Central Coast Law Enforcement Competition was started in the year 2000 with approximately 18 Law Enforcement agencies participating in daytime events. Over the years it has grown to between 40 - 50 participating agencies and 350 - 400 Law Enforcement Explorers. These events have carried over to night time scenarios, and a full two days of exciting, yet demanding competition. 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, Crisis Negotiations, and a Domestic Violence situation, just to name a few. 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 700 explorers in attendance with over 200 advisors, representing 53 explorer posts; CHP had 120 explorers and 41 advisors.
