What is obscene is the amount of overtime paid to the "advisers" of these young adults.

The city is broke and will be asking employees to take pay cuts, yet cops and other police staff get paid to go to meetings, trainings, and competitions with these kids.
Whatever shut it

hey Mr. Whatever, you have no idea what you're talking about. The officers that take time with this kids don't get paid enough and do A LOT of their work off the clock, not including endless phone calls from Scouts and their parents.

I guess it would be better if the cops were paid over time to catch these kids as CRIMINALS instead of Scouts.

Shut your pie hole!

Wow! Touch a nerve, did I?

I remember when Explorer and Boy Scout leaders were VOLUNTEERS. I wish I got paid CPD cop wages (time and a half even!) to do what thousands of people do for free.

Cash your check quick, Mr. Explorer Adviser. The Chief will have to answer very soon why he is spending money on a program like this while the department and city are mired in a financial crisis.
