A combined team of police explorers from Scarborough and Portland received several awards at the 2010 Explorer Tactical Challenge held recently in Connecticut. The explorers participated in mock tactical situations that sworn police officers might face and were graded on communications, teamwork, leadership, planning and execution skills. The team won second place for Best Overall Post Award, as well as individual awards for sniper challenge, drug warrant, bus assault, Hogan’s alley, rapid deployment and high risk warrant. Pictured here with their awards are, back row, from left, Scarborough Explorer Logan Mars, Portland Chief Explorer Ater Ater, Scarborough Explorer Brandon Ruel, and Scarborough Explorer Lt.
