Berks County Sheriff Explorer Post 027
Sheriff Eric J. Weaknecht has started an explorer post for young adults that are interested in a law enforcement career. This post will teach the explorers what it takes to be a law enforcement offi cer by off ering hands on training and experience. The explorers will learn about the BCSD as well as other law enforcement agencies including the US Marshal’s Offi ce, Pennsylvania State Police, Berks County District Attorney’s Offi ce, Berks County Jail System, State and County Parole and Juvenile Probation Offi ce just to name a few.
Explorers are between the ages of 14 and 20 years old and come from all areas of the county. The explorers will also play a key role in the BCSD by assisting in outreach programs and representing the department at events and competitions.
Berks County Sheriff ’s Department Explorer Post 027 is named after Berks County Deputy Sheriff Kyle Pagerly who was killed in the line of duty on June 29, 2011 while serving a felony warrant in Northern Berks County. Deputy Pagerly was enrolled to assist in starting the post prior to his death. Kyle’s badge number was 027 which has been retired and will be the post number in his honor.
This new program is run by department members who volunteer their time as well as civilian volunteers. For more information about the post please visit our website at CountyofBerks.com/Sheriff.
