Release Date: 
September 25, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz.-U.S. Customs and Border Protection- Tucson Field Office is about to begin a new outreach program that provides young men and women (ages 14-20) with an interest in a career in law enforcement, the chance to experience many of the activities firsthand.

CBP Law Enforcement Explorers Post #2600 is looking for interested individuals to take part in the group that will be providing law enforcement training in such areas as crime scene investigation, hostage negotiations and surveillance. The CBP Explorers Post #2600 will conduct interactive drills used to challenge members to think outside of the box, in a variety of areas including legal process, arrest and search techniques and domestic crisis intervention.

CBP Explorers will take part in fitness exams, first aid/CPR certification, and defensive tactics with a variety of federal law enforcement instructors. The programs are designed to assist participants in professional development, while also providing a venue toward community service within our local neighborhoods. After the program starts up, the potential for competitions and conferences are also expected.

If this sounds like something that might be of interest to you or someone you know, between the ages of 14-20 years, please contact the Explorers Post Advisor-Teresa Small @ 520-407-2319 or Post Associate Advisor-Kelly Ursu @ 520-407-2369.
