Las Vegas Explorer Conference - Ex-Con
"Ex-Con" stands for Explorer Conference, as in Law Enforcement Explorer Conference. Ex-Con was founded by three career law enforcement officers employed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. ALL three founders were former Explorers AND Explorer Advisors in Southern Nevada. Between the three, they have over 70 years combined Law Enforcement Explorer experience.
Ex-Con was established in 2003 in order to provide the best Law Enforcement Explorer Competition in the United States. The goal was to improve upon various other types of Explorer competitions that LVMPD Explorers and advisors had participated in. Ex-Con (The Competition) offers a significantly low cost, challenging, innovative and well organized competition unlike any other in the United States.
In 2011, Ex-Con Inc. was established. Ex-Con (as an organization) was substantially growing, so we incorporated in the State of Nevada as a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) entity. This expansion allowed us to better facilitate our mission and support our local programs. As a corporation, we strive to grow, improve and excel in the products we offer Explorers/Cadets, and their Advisors, from around the country.
We currently provide ‘The Competition’, which is an exciting annual law enforcement competition for Law Enforcement Explorers/Cadets from around the country. We also provide ‘Advisor Training’ for Explorer/Cadet Advisors from around the country and conduct annual training in Southern Nevada, as well as at least one “Road Show” Training Conference a year to assist those agencies that cannot afford the cost of travel for their advisors. We are also in the process of establishing a Leadership Academy which will consist of both high-stress and academic formats for Explorer/Cadet class officers from around the country. This format will allow all attendees to reside on a secure military base for the duration of the three day academy, and provides a unique and successfully proven opportunity for future law enforcement officers to gain and/or improve their leadership capabilities.
As a non-profit entity, Ex-Con Inc. supports local Southern Nevada Law Enforcement, Medical and Fire Explorer/Cadet programs every year through donations and scholarships. We receive support from many organizations from around the western United States and without such assistance our success would not be possible. We always wish to sincerely thank all of those persons and organizations that have so graciously helped us throughout the years!
