The Law Enforcement Explorer Leadership Academy, hosted by the U.S. Marshals Service, visited the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial this week as part of their summer session in Washington, DC. Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO Craig W. Floyd met with the Explorers and shared powerful stories about some of the officers, namely U.S. Marshals, whose names are inscribed on the Memorial walls.
Law Enforcement Exploring is a career orientation and experience program for young people (ages 14-21) contemplating a career in the field of criminal justice. Its mission is to offer young adults a personal awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, and other activities.
The National Law Enforcement Exploring Leadership Academies are biennial events, hosted by federal law enforcement agencies, which provide select Explorers with the opportunity to learn the dynamics of leadership and other skills. Information about Law Enforcement Exploring can be found on their website.
