Dickson Law Enforcement Explorer Post
David Coley, Crime Prevention Officer for the Dickson Police Department, has been working with the Law Enforcement Explorer Post in Dickson since 1998. This Explorer Post teaches high school age youth basic Law Enforcement Classes like handcuffing, working wrecks, DUI enforcement, SWAT training, criminal investigations, domestic violence, and more. The youth get hands-on training, class room training, and special guest instructors during their meetings. The officers also stage mock crime scenarios to gain experience and understanding of what it is like to be a law enforcement officer. Past Explorers from this post have become law enforcement officers, active duty military, a helicopter pilot, and a Flight Medic with AirEvac.

District Crossover
Highland Rim held their Annual Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremony on February 22nd at Montgomery Bell State Park. Packs, troops, and families from all four counties came out to watch over 20 WEBELOS crossover to Boy Scout troops. The ceremony was led by the Allagon Chapter of the Order of the Arrow. Thank you to Woody Hall, Jennifer Eutsler, and Troop 594 for organizing and hosting this successful event.

Community Events
On February 2nd, packs and troops throughout the district participated in their local worship service to honor Scout Sunday. Thank you to all of our units that participated in this event helping to strengthen the bond of Scouting in our local Chartered Organizations. On February 8th, packs and troops participated in the Annual Scouting for Food drive, helping deliver food to families in need throughout Dickson, Cheatham, Hickman, and Humphries counties.
