Louisville (KY) - Explorer Post Abuse Scandal

Recommended Posts

It is estimated that there are 1.4 million gang members in the United States. There are more adolescent boys in gangs than in scouting. Physical and sexual abuse in gangs is so common that the news media doesn't bother to report it. It's not news. 

Every case of sexual abuse in scouting is a headline story.

The National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference (NLEEC) will be held July 16-20 at Purdue. It is expected to draw 2,100 people to campus, including youth participants ages 12 to 20, adult counselors and law enforcement officers. NLEEC has been in existence since 1959. 

Law Enforcement Exploring is a career orientation and experience program for young people contemplating a career in the field of criminal justice. 

Conferees focus on career opportunities, leadership experiences, life skills, citizenship and character education. In addition, they participate in multiple competitive activities including protocols, procedures, marksmanship, drill team, crisis negotiation and emergency response. Activities range from driving to a camper entertainment show, as well as individual events and formal opening and closing.

At the conference website, I found no seminar discussion about the Louisville Police Explorer Scandal or YP changes in Exploring.

"Exploring serves two different age groups, both coed. Explorer Clubs serve middle schoolers, aged 10 - 13, in sixth through eighth grades. Explorer Posts serve older youth 14 - 20 years old. The program model is the same for age groups..."

Venturers age 18+ have to complete YPT. Assuming Explores do also?

Moreover, abuse prevention training is part of the venturing advancement curriculum under the title "Personal Safety Awareness". How about Explorers?
