CLEARWATER — The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 900 hosted the September 2013 Florida Association of Police Explorers Delegates Meeting and Pistol Competition this past weekend.

The Explorer Program is set up to give young men and women in Pinellas County an opportunity to learn about careers in law enforcement.

According to a Sheriff’s Office press release, Explorer posts from around the state met for a day of training to kick off the event, which consisted of a domestic violence investigations lecture.
