Minnesota Law Enforcement Explorer Competition

Minnesota Law Enforcement Explorer Competition

The MCPA sponsors a crime prevention scenario at this annual event that benefits hundreds of Minnesota youth interested in law enforcement careers. The event is judged by members of the MCPA Board of Directors, as well as general MCPA members who are interested in assisting at this event.

The Crime Prevention Scenario will consist of a quiz and a Crime Prevention Scenario-Home Security Survey.  Explorers will have 10 minutes to take the quiz and 10 minutes to complete the scenario.

The 15 point quiz will include questions based on general crime prevention concepts and information found in the Home Security Guide and booklet, “What to do Before the Burglar Comes”.

Upon completion of the quiz, the Explorers will go directly into a 10 minute scenario.  The Explorers will be doing a “Home Security Survey” with the MCPA judges posing as a resident who was a victim of a burglary.  The resident will be seeking input from the Explorers on what security improvements can be made to make them less likely of becoming a victim in the future.

Please use these resources to help prepare for the 2017 competition:

The MCPA, with the support of the MLEEA Board, also donates $600 in Visa Gift cards to the top five finishers of the competition. ($200 for 1st place, $150 for 2nd place, $100 for 3rd place, $75 for 4th and 5th places.) The gift cards are given directly to the Posts in order to help them support their Explorer Program.

The MCPA Board of Directors encourage members interested in helping to participate and plan next year’s crime prevention scenario to let one of the Board members know and watch for e-mail notification of the first planning meeting to revise the scenario and materials.
