Explorer Post 7610 Overview
The Hutto Police Department Explorer Program are chartered through Boy Scouts of America and is designed for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21, who are interested in law enforcement training, community service and recreation programs. When you become a member, we hope to broaden your outlook into law enforcement as a career.
The Hutto Law Enforcement Explorer Post number 7610 was chosen to honor Sergeant Christopher Kelley. Sergeant Kelley's radio number was 7610 and has since been retired. Sergeant Kelley was killed in the line of duty on June 24, 2015 while attempting to apprehend a suspect. Sergeant Kelley was a friend, a mentor, and a leader within the Hutto Police Department. He is sorely missed and will never be forgotten.
The mission of the Hutto Law Enforcement Explorer Post Number 7610 is to provide youth the opportunity to learn firsthand practical law enforcement experience through a controlled environment. Explorers will learn the importance of leadership, teamwork, honesty, and service to the community. Explorers will develop characteristics necessary to become effective members and future leaders of our community.
