Dealership Supports Development of Future Public Safety Officers
On Saturday, November 17, Ed Bozarth Chevrolet made a $10,000 donation to the Aurora Police Explorers.
Since 1980, the Aurora Police Department’s Explorer Program has offered young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21 the opportunity to explore a career in law enforcement. The Aurora Police Department is the third largest municipal police department in the state with approximately 650 sworn officers. The mission of the Aurora Police Explorers is to provide youth from local high schools and colleges with opportunities that promote leadership, discipline, citizenship and fitness while also promoting positive relationships with members of the Police Department. The Aurora Police Explorers has launched the careers of more than 50 local, state and federal officers in Colorado. More information can be found at www.auroraexplorers.com.
According to Ed Bozarth Chevrolet President Kent Bozarth, “As a member of the Aurora business community, we are incredibly grateful for the hard work and courage exhibited by our police department. Our donation to the Aurora Police Explorers will help build future generations of public safety officials in Aurora.”
Kent Bozarth and Ed Bozarth Chevrolet encourage fellow local business leaders to support the Police Explorers program. As a volunteer non-profit group, the program receives no money from the Aurora Police Department or the City of Aurora to run its day to day operations and is dependent on fund raising and donations from companies and individuals. To make a donation to the Aurora Police Explorers, contact Sergeant Patrick Shaker at 303-739-6050 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
