THE EXPLORER PROGRAM
The Annual State Capital Explorer Competition will be held on May 2 to May 4, 2014 at the California
Highway Patrol Academy located in West Sacramento.
The competition is designed to be very demanding on the physical and mental capabilities of each Explorer. Events
are designed to test the strengths and limitations of a personís 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 the real life situations including Felony Stops, DUI Stops, Vehicle Searches, Building Searches
and a Domestic Violence situation, just to name a few. The competition will test the Explorers physical abilities and
teamwork through an obstacle course and a tug of war. Mental abilities are tested through a variety of events including a Law Enforcement Entry Level Written
Trophies are awarded for 1st through 5th place in each event with 1st through 3rd place overall scores. Participants
are encouraged to participate in every event as points are earned for each event toward the overall trophies.
We wish to express our thanks to our sponsors
