Jeanne Lawrie, Learning for Life Director, Northern Star Council wrote on 07/20/2006:
I just wanted to personally thank and commend each of you for your work with law enforcement Exploring!  Not that the trophies are the reason you all do this, but they certainly paint a very clear picture that you do an excellent job preparing all of the Explorers involved in MLEEA.  The teams that were in Arizona, whether they won a trophy or not, were by far, among the very best of the best at the recent national conference, and they are just a sampling of what we see every year at Breezy Point.  The Minnesota youth were noticed for all of the right reasons, they knew what they were doing, they were polite, and they were extremely professional.

I watch the kids and advisors from other areas, and they just don't seem to be as well prepared or provide nearly as good a program as all of you offer to our kids here in Minnesota.  I talk to other Exploring professionals and I always hear how lucky we are to have an association like MLEEA and believe me, I do know how lucky we are!

I've been raving all week about how great everyone did and I wanted all of you to know that I recognize it is because of all your hard work and dedication that Minnesota kids did so well at nationals.  I can't thank you enough for all that you do, you make my job easy and you definitely make it fun and rewarding!

Greetings my name is explorer sergeant Terrell Douglas from post# 2073, and I'm here to say that this is a great web site.  It's good to see explorers from all over the U.S.A. to come together.  Good luck to all explorers and thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my suggestions.

Your association has a nice website put together, very informative and up to date! Both of which are very rare when comparing Exploring websites.

I want to join Shakopee police explorers, because I have a great interest in law enforcement.  This has been a help in getting information.

I am very excited to see that many law enforcement agencies across the country support the Law Enforcement Explorers.  That shows how good communication is between law enforcement officials and young people across the nation.

Explorer Lt. Cole Frank, former explorer from St. Louis Park Post 505.  Explorers is a great program and taught me a lot of information.  I would recommend explorers to any individual interested in either law enforcement or anyone looking for a way to excel as a person or as a member of the community.  I am now a Security Police officer in the military and have to say that most the information about my job I already had a handle on because of explorers.

Hey Everybody I would just like to Back up our youth rep with the Law Enforcement Exploring Academies.  I had the honor of going to the the one the FBI hosted.  I did many of the same things the Dan did except I didn't get to see the president unfortunately :( Well anyway, I had some great advisors that all worked with the FBI that taught me many different things about leadership.  The next academy is in 2007 and I highly recommend applying for it.  We need some Minnesotans to represent us down there!  If you have any questions about it, you can e-mail me at pede0496@metnet.edu Thanks!

Hey People'z.  I am a former Police Explorer for the Corpus Christi Police Department Post# 133.  It was one heck of an experience with the training and I would just like to thank the Police officer's and all the fellow Explorer's I met, I will make my big return soon but not now.  But If any Corpus Christi Police Explorer is reading this, then know that I have not forgotten about them and I still think of ya'. Thanks again. This is A.J. Signing out.......

Chad Nagorski, Duluth Police Department wrote on 11/23/2005:
I was doing a Google search on my name to see what popped up and I found this website.  I was happy to see that the Explorer program in Minnesota has had a lot of students go on to law enforcement careers.  I was associated with the Explorer program in Wright County off and on from 1990 until approximately 1996.  I am currently working with the Duluth Police Department as an Investigator assigned to the Minnesota Gang Strike Force/Organized Crime Bureau.  Thank you for showing support of past Explorers.  Maybe this will show current Explorers that they truly have an "edge up" on the competition!  Respectfully, Chad Nagorski

In 1994 Shawn Silvera was an award winning and scholarship recipient at Breezy Point from Coon Rapids PD.  Yesterday 9/6/05, as a Lino Lakes Police Officer he was killed by a fleeing felon during a vehicle pursuit.  Our prayers go out to him, his family, the Lino Lakes PD, and all who knew him.  Being a cop and being an Explorer were very important to Shawn.  "On Eagles Wings" patrolling heaven.

Hey everybody, I just came back from an ADVANCED LEADERSHIP ACADEMY up in MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN.  We were there for a whole week.  IT WAS GREAT.  Well, my e-mail address is cjarechiga@msn.com,, and feel free to e-mail me to talk about the explorers or what ever.

Dan Berndtson, Wright County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post #641 wrote on 08/04/2005:
Hello to all again...  I just got back two weeks ago from the 2005 National Law Enforcement Explorer Leadership Academy with the DEA held in Quantico, VA.  I would strongly recommend this to all explorers across the state for the future academies.  I had an absolute blast and learned so much in the weeks time we were out there.  We got to tour many of the federal agencies like the Secret Service in Beltsville, the ATF, and the Postal Inspection agency.  We had the honor of sitting in on the President's speech that he gave to the nation on terrorism.  The week was an experience of a lifetime and if you have the chance, apply for the academy.  I look forward to a great rest of the year and hope to see you all at Duluth.  If you have any questions or concerns you can email me at Danman728@hotmail.com.. Thanks and see you all in a few months.

Great website!  It's nice to see what my fellow former explorers are up to.  For all you explorers going to Breezy Point, I have 1 suggestion: don't brush up against any furniture (shelves, etc...) during bomb scene search!

Hello and first off, great site!  We wanted to say thank you to all of the Explorers and their Commanders for their dedication to this great organization.  The Swat House is a proud supporter of our own Explorer Posts in Las Vegas, Nevada and we recently participated in Explorer Competition 2005 also known as Ex-Con.  Thanks again and keep your head up, elbows in, and always check your six!

Breezy was fun, there was confusion but it was all of our hard work practicing paid off for us and I would do this again with out holding back.  Our post did good but I am the shy one so I didn't do really good but I thought this was the best weekend with my post/friends......  Other explorer posts were tight too, but there is still a lot of drama between each other....   For all the 1st timers have fun and don't be scared and don't hold back say what you have to say and do your best!

Hey, well I just dropped by to say hi and to ask everyone to wish me luck at training to become a police explorer!!  I am really glad that there is a program for young adults like me who are interested in police work!!

Ashley O'Rourke, St. Louis County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post wrote on 05/02/2005:
If posts are looking for additional ways to support their communities a great way is to get involved in the "First Lady's Military Family Care Initiative."  Community Groups volunteer to assist families who have a family member serving over seas.  Tasks include washing cars, mowing lawns, picking up groceries, as well as a variety of other projects.  A group can specify the community they serve and the types of projects they are involved in.  Families request assistance and groups are asked to help out.  Our post is just getting involved within our county, and with additional Minnesota troops shipping out, it's a good way for other posts to get involved as well!

Dan Berndtson, Wright County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post #641 wrote on 04/27/2005:
Hey Everyone.  I had a great time at Breezy Point and I enjoyed meeting all the new faces.  I am very excited to serve as your 2005 - 2006 MN Youth Representative and if you ever have concerns or questions, send me an email at Danman728@hotmail.com. Thanks again for making this another great year at Breezy and I will see you all at Duluth.

I saw that my name was on the explorer honor roll.  That is really neat.  I remember being an explorer at age 15 and looking forward to being a cop and her I am.  I'm 32 and have been a deputy for over 7 years.  It's Great!!!  My advice to anyone that reads this is work hard in explorers and get a good education.  Good luck to anyone that wants to go into this field.  Thanks.

David Cherrey, Coon Rapids and Mankato wrote on 02/16/2005:
I just wanted to say that as an ex explorer for both Coon Rapids and Mankato I have great respect for the entire explorer program. I am graduating this spring from MSU Mankato with a 4 year law enforcement degree and with the training I received in explorers I am one step up on other job applicants.  Thanks to both Coon Rapids and Mankato posts for the training and I hope you both the best in the future.

Hey everyone! I haven't heard from many of you in a while. I miss the emails from everyone I met at the National Conference. If you get some time, my new email address is lampkin2@gardenapd.org.

Also, in case anyone's wondering I haven't been calling you all because I accidentally packed up my folder with all the addresses and telephone numbers.  My family just brought a new home and we'll be moving next month hopefully.  I also hope all of you that contacted me received your LASD patches.  My Sgt said he sent them some time in September.

In the mean time, stay safe, have fun, and keep Exploring.

I would like to say that being a Police Explorer has opened my eyes to what is to come in my career and I am thankful for that.  A lot of people do not see that by doing this program you learn a lot but in all you do and that is cool.

Dan McCullough, Plymouth Explorer Post wrote on 07/12/2004:
I think it is really unfair that you had one person place twice in the fun run.  This was my first year up at Breezy this year and when I ran it I felt extremely proud of myself because of my age and how well I did in the fun run.  Then when I found out that they decided to give a runner 2 trophies.  I think that was very unfair and I was hurt and now my judgment about how Breezy Point is run well not the competitions because those were fun and they were really good practice and good scenarios.  So I am only complaining about the fun run.

Hello MLEEA,  Its been a very long time since I kept up with the threads here.  I was wondering if any of your explorers will be attending the 2004 National Explorer Conference in Atlanta Georgia.  If so, I hope Explorers from Los Angeles County will have an opportunity to meet your representatives.  I also hope that everyone will take the chance to view the updated website of the Los Angeles County Explorer Officers Association.  I think its awesome that steps are being made to unify the program as a whole rather than just as a post.  Sincerely,  D'Andre Lampkin

I have been with my agency for 7 months now, and this was my first Breezy, I thought it was a lot of fun.  I learned a lot and made some new friends.  It was nice to see so many people with the same goal as mine.  Sometimes as an Explorer I get teased by my friends because I want to be a Cop.  At least I am not Alone!  All and all Breezy was great and I am looking forward to next year.

Hi, I missed Breezy last year because of prom but I plan on being there in full force this year.  I had a great time at the Duluth competition in October, and I learned lot of new things.  I wish you all good luck and am waiting to see you at the next competition.  I was just wondering if any other posts had fundraising ideas, we are in need of them.  If you do PLEASE e-mail me at uberstew02@yahoo.com

Hello, I was looking at your site and saw the Honor Roll.   I noticed that Roseville Police Explorer Post #574 isn't listed.  It not only developed me into an outstanding Military Policeman in the United States Marine Corps, but developed me into the Military Policeman of the Month for the largest district of the largest Provost Marshal's Office in the Marine Corps.  I guess I just didn't submit my name before to let you know that a Roseville explorer is now on the job.  LCpl Hendrickson, MPD/N Okinawa, Japan

Hello, my name is Chris Ahr.  I am the Lieutenant for the Boerne Police Dept. Law Enforcement Explorers in Boerne, Texas.  We are a new department, in fact, this is our first year in operation.  I was browsing the net for established programs to get ideas and information from and came across your site.  Our Explorers have undergone basic training in Searches, arrest procedures, vehicle stops, and basic investigation.  As I mentioned before we are a new program and are still trying to get organized.  As of now we have about 10 active members.  By looking at the results from the last national competition, I noticed that several Texas Explorer posts placed.  My question to you is: Do you know of a Texas Law Enforcement Explorer Association, and if so would you know of a number or web site where we may contact them?  Any information or advice you can give us would be most appreciated.  We also have a website if you would like to visit it.  The address is: http://members.aol.com/bhscops/Home/index.htm  Thank you again.

I'm on the Coon Rapids Post#763 and I think that this site says a lot  what the Explorer program is all about.

I was just wondering how you guys got a web site?  Did it cost you a lot of money?  What company made it for you?  Did you guys make it yourself?  Would you like to trade department patches, we dont have our own, sorry.  If you have any questions about our post you can e-mail me at Craigs2432@aol.com  How many members are in your post?  We have 20 in our division, but there are 6 divisions.

Wow!  What a web page!  I'm sick right now in my dorm at Ferris State University and found this web page on my computer.  I live in Michigan and a member of the Madison Heights Police Explorer post in Michigan.  I was particularly interested in your nationals page.  I say my name on the pistol competition.  I got to show all my friends what a great shot I am.  Just joking.  Nice job with web page, wish MI had one too.

I think you have a excellent site.  It needs to be updated a little, but other than that it has some great information.  I will keep in mind the information you put on your website.  I believe I will start a website for our Explorers in the near future.  Also, I'm trying to work with other posts for training ideas and other necessities.  We are a long ways from each other, but maybe we can work together via Internet.

I like that there is a place for more recently started posts, like ours, can get information on events we don't know about.  The Breezy Point info, was great to post, Thanks!

Matthew Wieland, Washington County Sheriff's Post 2528 wrote:
This is a very information page, I have been in law enforcement exploring with Washington County Post 2528 for four years, but never knew Minnesota had a page for their explorer posts.  I suggest that this page be announced at the Breezy Point conference.  Is there any information regarding the 2000 Nationals in Indiana? Also, I have a change to report to you regarding our contact Advisor, it is no longer Bernie Morency, it is Sgt. Jay Kimble. (Same Contact #) I suggest a listing of email addresses of explorers in Minnesota who are interested in communicating with other explorers, which might lead to more interactive between posts.

I think you might be interested in a police officer's site.  It is at www.wararts.com and this site informs visitors exactly how to get into Law Enforcement, from application to academy.  I think you'd really like it.  Good Luck!

Hello, I am a currently a student  in Graduate school in St. Cloud State.  I commute to classes there and am doing research in the Criminal Justice area.  I happened across your site and felt that I could reach out from my experience and possibly assist in some manner.  I am a duty disabled retired officer, who stared out as an explorer.  During my career as an officer in La Crosse, I became an advisor and also a representative of the post to the BSA.  Please contact me if there is any interest in using my assistance in your program.  In the spring semester I will be at St. Cloud on Sundays and Mondays.   Thank You.

Good page!  I have an affinity for the shoot score page, but I like how you give an overview of exploring for the rest of the world to see.  The pictures from Breezy and Nationals really bring back the memories.  I sometimes wonder how you (and the others, of course) can find the time to run the shoots like you do.  What I know for a fact is that we really appreciate it.  It allows us to "practice" for breezy but still maintains the competitive nature characteristics of target shooting.

We was just wondering on when are you going to put the new info on Breezy Point.  We just wanted to say that we like finding out how many other post that are on the web site.  We hope that you keep this web site going for a long time.  Thanks, New Hope Police Explorers.

I like the way you guys keep up with the shooting scores from Maple Grove.   I also like the web site because of the way it is set up.  It is easy to find things and look them up on this site.  Thank you very much for supporting the Minnesota Police Explorers.

This is a very good website.  It was very nice being able to look up information from when I was still an explorer.  I am currently a Fire Explorer Advisor and as far as I know we do not have a website like this.  Keep up the great work.  Also, I would like serve as a role player possibly at the next Breezy Point Conference.

It is great to see another state Association on the web.  I hope things are going well for your association.  I know fund other information to help out can be hard sometimes.  I have added your site to our links page.  We now have 200 links to Law Enforcement exploring web sites.  Good Luck
