Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic this program is temporarily suspended. 

The Hutto Law Enforcement Explorer Post number 7610 was chosen to honor Sgt. Christopher Kelley. 7610 was Sgt. Kelley’s radio number and has since been retired. Sgt. Kelley was killed in the line of duty on June 24, 2015 while attempting to apprehend a suspect. Sgt. Kelley was a friend, a mentor, and a leader within the Hutto Police Department. He is sorely missed and will never be forgotten.
