A group of high school and college aged men and women interested in becoming

police officers will gather on campus July 21-25 for a conference. While on

campus, the group will train in simulated situations alongside professional

police officers in resident halls and on the Lory Student Center west lawn.

Streets on campus will be closed, and the conference will include explosives

training and the landing of a Black Hawk helicopter on campus.

On Monday, July 21, Plum Street will be blocked off between the Towers and

Lory Hall for an evening activity from 4 to 8 p.m.

On Friday, July 25, the conference will provide an explosives training

demonstration. Meridian Avenue will be closed between Plum and University

Avenue from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a perimeter will be set around the Lory

Student Center west lawn to protect pedestrians.

At least four different explosive devices will be detonated sometime between

8:30-10:30 a.m.

In addition, a Black Hawk helicopter will land on the west lawn of the Lory

Student Center between 11 a.m.-noon, as part of a final exercise.

The National Law Enforcement Explorers Conference includes about 3,500 youth

and law enforcement professionals. This conference is not sponsored by CSU,

but the conference is using university facilities.
