L.S. Police Explorers follow examples of community service


A few weeks ago, the Journal published an article about the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving the community by cleaning Lundeen Park. The Lake Stevens Police Explorers were inspired by the article and on Tuesday, November 5 they took the streets to serve our community.

Several Explorers combed North Cove Park picking up trash and another group detailed and cleaned the Armed Services Memorial near City Hall in honor of the upcoming Veterans Day. Explorer Advisor Deb Smith was with the Explorers during the event.

"The kids were enthusiastic about cleaning up 'their city' and were especially diligent about making the flag area look good for the upcoming Veterans Day event," Smith said. 

The Lake Stevens Police Explorers will be doing several community service projects throughout 2014. Their goal is to continue to conduct training in law enforcement but to be an active and visible presence in their community. 

Police Explorers are dedicated young men and women between the ages of 14 to 20 who are interested in a career in law enforcement.
