At the July 24th Special Presentations, Councilman Larry Roth recognized the Homestead Police Explorers who recently competed against teams from 22 other Florida municipalities, and took home two awards.
The Homestead Police Explorers is a law-enforcement-based community service program that falls under the City of Homestead Police Department. Its purpose is to bring together law enforcement officers and youth with an interest in law enforcement as a possible career. The program instills discipline, responsibility and leadership qualities in its participants.
Explaining the success of the Homestead Police Explorers, Councilman Roth said “A lot of it is due to Officer Wadley and her commitment to the kids – teaching them and showing them that through hard work and tremendous effort, you can accomplish anything.”
Explorer Chief Maximo Valdes, who has been in the program three years, said, “I want to give thanks to our wonderful Explorer advisor Officer Wadley. Without her, none of this would be possible.”
