On Saturday, March 10, 2012 the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will host an inter-agency training day for area law enforcement cadet/explorer programs. The training will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and provide valuable experience, in a controlled environment, regarding situations law enforcement officers handle in the performance of their duties. This is a valuable part of the decision process for young adults exploring law enforcement as a career choice. There are currently nine members of the Sheriff’s Office who began their careers as cadets with the Office.
Approximately 60 Cadets/Explorers from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Springs Police Department will converge at Widefield High School for a day filled with law enforcement related reality based scenarios including traffic contacts, building searches and in-progress calls for service. Deputy Andrew Holmes will be the point of contact at the training and can be reached at 719-237-6919.
