Last week nine of the Fountain Police Department Explorers traveled to Gunnison to compete at the Law Enforcement Explorer Post Advisors Association of Colorado (LEEPAAC).
This competition hosts 20 agencies from all over Colorado, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Arizona totaling over 112 Explorers.
The Explorers are broken down into 28 four-man teams where they must work together in scenarios designed to test their police knowledge and abilities. The scenarios consist of Domestic Violence, High Risk Stop, Cell Searches, Hostage Negotiations, and an Active Shooter/Officer Down scenario.
