Hundreds of police explorers came to the Valley for the 13th Annual Chandler Tactical Competition on Sunday.

It was held at the Chandler Fire Department Training Facility.

The nationwide Explorer Program is for young adults aged 14-21 who want a career in law enforcement.

Explorer is a co-educational program developed and supervised by community organizations, businesses and individuals.

The members are taught skills such as communication, teamwork and organization.

On Sunday, the Phoenix Police Department Explorer Post #2906 competed against 60 other Explorer posts from around the country.

Over 700 explorers took part.

In addition to obstacle courses and fitness events, there were also emergency simulations such as High Risk Warrants, Rapid Deployment, Narcotics Bust, and Hostage Rescue Mission.
