HANNON LAW GROUP, LLP, is a proud sponsor of the 2018 DC Metro Brothers in Blue Bash, a fundraiser benefiting the Montgomery County Police Explorer Post 1986.
The Montgomery County Police Explorer is a youth volunteer group administered by the Captain of the Montgomery County Police Department Training Division. Explorers are students ages 14 to 20, who are interested in law enforcement careers or are looking to gain leadership skills. Training is not only geared toward law enforcement but also to leadership and life skills that help students become model citizens. The Explorers receive training in police procedures and participate in law enforcement activities. They, for instance, delivered security details for medical tents during the 2017 presidential inauguration. But Explorers also provide community services: every year they cultivate a piece of farm land in Montgomery County and give the produce to a soup kitchen; they engage in campaigns to raise awareness about, for example, how to secure cars against theft. The Explorers offer a highly valuable service to the Montgomery County community by raising their young men and women to protect and serve.
The DC Metro Brothers in Blue Bash features a big dinner party with raffles and auction. The proceeds will allow the Explorers to participate in national competitions and an exchange program with a London youth police program, regardless of their families’ financial abilities, but based solely on each individual’s demonstrated qualifications as a member of the Explorers. HANNON LAW GROUP is delighted that with its contribution the Explorers will continue to educate and form future law enforcement officers and responsible citizens.
