PBG Police Explorers
Named as Regional Champions

Congratulations to the members of our Palm Beach Gardens Police Explorer Post #704 who took First Place in the 2017 Law Enforcement Challenge. This Regional Competition is an annual career-skills event for Law Enforcement Exploring posts in South Florida.

Team members who participated in numerous scenario- and training-based events that simulate typical law enforcement activities.

Regional Competition

Each year, our Police Explorers travel to the Martin County Fairgrounds where they compete against 9 other Explorer teams from Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties. Their competition simulates typical scenarios encountered on a daily basis by law enforcement officers. They also compete in physical assessment testing, the same as is required of cadets entering the police academy. Each Explorer's performance, individually and as a team member, is evaluated by active duty law enforcement officers.

Andrew George The Challenge Events

Our Palm Beach Gardens Police Explorers participated in all 11 scenarios and performance events and finished first in building searches, domestic crisis intervention, DUI assessment, felony traffic stops and sit-ups; second place in the active shooter scenario and third in the physical assessment testing. Other events that make up the competition are target shooting, routine traffic stops, bicycle obstacle course, and ceremonial drill.

Police Explorers' Awards Luncheon

The regional competition was held on April 8th and the Explorers had to wait until Saturday, April 22nd to learn the results of their performance. The Law Enforcement Challenge Banquet, sponsored by the Gulf Stream Council of the Boy Scouts of America, was held at the PGA Resort and Spa and attended by each of the competing teams as well as their advisors and department Command staff.

It was at this event that our Explorers learned that they had placed First among the ten competing Explorer Posts. Finishing in second place was the Stuart Police Department Explorer Post and in third place was the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post. Our Explorers, dressed in their Class A uniforms, were anxious to know how they performed and ecstatic to learn that they had been ranked at the top among their peers.

Police Explorers' Advisors

Special thanks and appreciation goes out to the members of our Palm Beach Gardens Police Department who serve as Advisors to the Explorer Post.

Led by Officer Jason Sharon and Officer Alexis Behrue, they are assisted by Officer Stacey Clayton, Officer Alex Huba, Officer Robert Artola, Advisor Kirsten Eriksson and Sergeant Robert Boschen. Sergeant Geoff Soule who heads up the Community Involvement Unit and Special Operations Major Paul Rogers also attended the Awards Luncheon and congratulated the members of Post #704 on their achievements


The Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation is a major supporter of the Police Department as well as the Police Explorer Post and we were thrilled to learn of the outstanding results of their hard work and training. Congratulations Explorer Post #704 - Palm Beach Gardens!
