The Taylorville Police Department would like to thank Credit Collection Partners and Alderman Megan Bryant for donating $1,427.60 to the Police Explorer Program. Chief Dwayne Wheeler said the donation will go for uniforms, boots and equipment. The Police Explorer Program is designed to give the explorer a working knowledge of police functions and a feeling of a social awareness and responsibility, and at the same time, stimulate interest in law enforcement practices as well as a strong code of ethics. There are currently 14 explorers and anyone interested must be between the ages of 14-20. Please contact Officer Grove at Jody.Grove@taylorvillepolice.com for more information.
