Join the Wright County Sheriffs Explorer program



The Wright County Sheriff's Law Enforcement Explorer Post 3641 invites students ages 15-20, interested in joining, to attend the 2012 Annual First Nighter Recruitment and Informational meeting at 7 p.m. Monday Sept. 17, at the Wright County Law Enforcement Center, 3800 Braddock Ave NE in Buffalo, Minn.

As an Explorer, students gain insight into law enforcement as a prospective career opportunity. Explorers receive academic and basic skills training related to the law enforcement profession and related careers. Explorers train for scenario-based competitions, and eligible members can participate in the Ride-Along program.

The Wright County post has been a part of the Sheriff's Office since 1979 and has seen more than 40 of its members go on to successful law enforcement careers.

Parents are certainly encouraged to attend the First Nighter as well.

For more information, or if you are interested but unable to attend this meeting, you can contact the Post through the Sheriff's Administration desk, (763) 682-7622, and leave a message for Sgt. Dave

Nystuen.
