Friends and Family of Law Enforcement Trivia Night was a Huge Success
The Florissant Police Explorer Post currently has nine members. The Explorers (a division of the Boy Scouts of America), expose young men and women to the career of Law Enforcement.
The program allows these potential Law Enforcement recruits the opportunity to observe law enforcement professionals while they perform their daily duties. In addition, the Florissant Police Department Explorers contribute numerous hours of volunteer service to their community.
The Exploring Program is designed to provide young adults with an effective tool to build character, promote citizenship, and develop personal and mental fitness.
The Florissant Police Explorers Post is aimed at young adults, aged 15-21 (who have completed the 8th grade), and who have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 grade scale, and are of good moral character.
The annual Friends and Family of Law Enforcement Explorers’ Trivia night, held March 29, raised approximately $9200. The fundraiser benefitted both the Florissant Explorer Post and the Overland Explorer Post.
Florissant Police Officer Andy Haarmann organized the event and Florissant Councilman Joe Eagan was the master of ceremonies. 34 teams participated in this year’s event.
The Explorers thanked all of the local businesses who contributed to the event and to everyone who came out to give their support.
