Law Enforcement Explorer Conference
In 1983, while at the National Law Enforcement Explorer Conference in Ft. Collins, Colorado, several advisors from Colorado Law Enforcement Posts met and considered the possibility of developing a state conference for Colorado. The advisors formed an association and named it Law Enforcement Explorer Post Advisor's Association of Colorado (L.E.E.P.A.A.C.). The purpose of this association was to sponsor a State Conference for law enforcement explorers.
This years Law Enforcement Explorer Conference is being held at Johnson and Wales University in Denver, CO, July 14, 2013 - July 19, 2013. Registration is available online, March 1, 2013. Please note: payment will not be accepted at the time of registration. Please send payment to:

2013 National Exploring Journey to Excellence Award
The new National Exploring Journey to Excellence Award changes the basic way we measure and recognize success in Exploring. Posts can qualify for a Bronze, Silver or Gold level of achievement. The objectives were developed following extensive research into proven indicators of enduring post programs. In planning your strategy, use actual numbers from the previous renewal year to chart your progress. Use the criteria in planning your strategy for the coming year to guide your performance improvement. The post youth officers should take the lead in making this assessment.
Exploring Newsletter, March 2013
In response to popular demand, Exploring will publish a quarterly newsletter that will be emailed to all Post Advisors and uploaded to the homepage. If you have an article or an event coming up that you would like to see in upcoming June newsletter, drop a note to John Eastman, Exploring Director or JoLynne in the Exploring office.
