As a young teenager, Michael Shuda’s brother often came home with stories about the fun time he had in the Faribault Police Department’s Explorer program. Now, more than a decade later, officer Shuda is an Explorer advisor who helps recruit interested youth for the program.

Faribault Police Explorers especially enjoy their use-of-force drills, where they use laser-guns to deal with scenarios, which are controlled by the explorer advisors. (Photo courtesy of Michael Shuda and the Faribault Police Department)
