On June 18, 2021 five Police Explorers from the Lake Havasu City Police Department graduated from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cadet Basic Training Academy located in Phoenix, AZ. The two week course consists of training in topics ranging from team building, physical conditioning, history of law enforcement, community relations, drill and facing movements, and patrol operations to crime scene processing, defensive tactics, alcohol awareness, firearms, and CPR and first aid.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department would like to congratulate Explorers Kalley Denison, Brandon Hancher, Christian Larsen, Stephen Samarin, and Sara Swann for graduating from the Cadet Basic Training Academy. Additionally, Steven Samarin and Sara Swann both received awards for achieving top scores in physical fitness, while Stephen Samarin also received the award for top overall score in academics.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department Explorer Program is a career education program for young men and women ages 14 to 20 years old, giving them hands-on experience so they have a better understanding of the job of a police officer. The program helps explorers develop leadership skills and self-confidence as well as learning how the different units of the Lake Havasu City Police Department function together. The program also builds trust and cooperation between youth and the police department. Information about the program or how to join can be found at the link below.
