Congratulations New Hope Police Explorers!

The New Hope Police Explorers are small in numbers, but won big at the recent Minnesota Law Enforcement Explorer Association (MLEEA) State Conference held in Rochester.

The New Hope post won the most prestigious award, the “Don Cup”, so named for the three men named Don who were instrumental in creating the Explorer program in Minnesota. The award stands for outstanding accomplishments that demonstrate the mission of quality, service, and life-long learning. To become eligible for this award, the New Hope Post sent a letter to the MLEEA describing their accomplishments in the past year that show outstanding efforts in teamwork, dedication, quality, and service.

The competition was tough with 43 Police and Sheriff explorer Posts from across the state participating. But, New Hope prevailed, in part for their help after the January 26 incident at city hall.

In addition to the Don Cup, the post also won 2nd place in Hostage Negotiation and 4th place in Pistol Shooting.

New Hope Explorers are Jordan Lehman, Serina Rodela, and Elizabeth Rohe. The Post advisors are Britni Austin, Erick Dyer, & Kaitlyn Baker.

The New Hope Crime Prevention Fund provides financial support for the New Hope Police Explorer Post.  The Post also conducts fundraising events to help pay for their training and competitions.  In 2016 they hope to compete in the 2016 National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference.
