UNION, NJ – Three young men graduated from Union’s Explorer Program this week.
Explorers in good standing graduate from the program once they reach 18 or finish their senior year in high school. The three graduating Explorers are Khaleel Subhan-Khan, Dijon Hodges and Anthony Alves.
According to Union Police Sgt. Tim Ford, all three Explorers were “highly active in the program and were respectful and eager to learn”. They attended the 2016 National Night Out, the 2016 Holiday tree lighting at town hall, the 2017 Union County Saint Patrick`s Day Parade and the 2017 park clean-up event.
“These young men and their families were all extremely supportive of the Explorer Program,” said Ford. He said the Explorers commended Deputy Chief Landolfi for his dedication to ensuring the program thrives in Union.
The Union Explorers Program participants are high school students interested in law enforcement as a possible career. Explorers receive training in CPR, traffic control, accident investigations, crime prevention, communications and assist the Township with community events.
