BRISTOL – State Representatives Cara Pavalock-D’Amato (R-77) and Whit Betts (R-78) celebrated the accomplishments of several young men and women Wednesday night during an annual awards event held for those enrolled in the Bristol Police Explorer Post 111 program.
The program consists of youths between the ages of 14 and 21, who either live in Bristol or a bordering town that doesn’t currently have an explorer program available and are interested in the criminal justice field. In order to be accepted, they must submit a formal application and pass a background investigation.
