HamCo Sheriff’s Explorers learn police work at delegates meeting in Duval County

Jasper — Eleven Hamilton County Sheriff’s Explorers traveled to Jacksonville to attend the March Delegates meeting, held March 8-10, along with  their Advisor Sergeant Emily Lumpkin and Associate Advisor Deputy Cornelius Bennett.

The Explorers who attended were Quinton Miller, Jristin Smith, Robert Jones, Regina Carson, Dornisha Marshall, Sierra Beck, Kayla Newsome, T'keya Curry, Jordan Curry, Davenea Melvin and Oneasha Jones.

While in Duval County, the Explorers received intense training in building searches, traffic stops, tactical first aid, and a firearms training simulator (FATS Machine), according to Lumpkin.

“After a full morning of training they were served lunch at the Academy,” said Lumpkin.

After the training, the Explorers went back to the Marriott Hotel for the opening ceremony where they were dressed in Class A attire for their Explorers business meeting.  

“Hamilton County Explorer's Jristin Smith and Regina Carson addressed the advisors on the possibility of considering implementing bullying and substance abuse prevention in the Explorer youth training curriculum, since it’s a big issue among our youth today,” Lumpkin explained. “The idea was well accepted by the advisors and will be implemented at the State Delegates meeting.”

After the opening ceremonies the Explorers were treated to a formal banquet and dance/social.

“I would like to commend our youth leaders on a job well done,” said Lumpkin. “They were eager to learn and exemplified excellent behavior. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible.”
