In the Spring the OP Police Post hosts a Law Enforcement Challenge event which includes Law Enforcement Explorer Posts from the 19 counties the Heart of America Serves. The annual event offers exciting hands on exercises for you to experience a day in the life of a Police Officer. Being an Explorer in our post will bring you up close and personal with the law enforcement career field and truly show you a more personal aspect of those who serve as law enforcement in your city.
