The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Explorers Post No. 91 raised $1,837, all of which will go toward the Special Olympics, in the Jan. 26 Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park.
The Explorer Program is in affiliation with the Law Enforcement Exploring Program, a subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America, according to a sheriff’s office press release. The intent of this program is to educate and involve youth in police operations. Through their involvement, youth in the Explorer Program develop an awareness of the complexities of police service.
Explorers are volunteers and are not considered to be employees of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, the release states. The Explorer Post is made up of young men and women ages 14 to 21. Explorers must have parent or guardian approval, must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 or higher and must pass a background check.
