  Original Published: 9/24/2013A promotion ceremony was held Monday night at the Richland County Sheriff's Office for members of the Richland County Explorer's Unit Program. Jacob Fraizer, Dakota Essick and Ashley Canankamp were all honored. Frazier, a sophmore at Ontario High School, was promoted to lieutenant. Canankamp, a junior at Madison Comprehensive High School, was promoted to sergeant. Essick, a sophmore at Madison Comprehesive High School, was promoted to sergeant. The program allows members to participate in a variety of programs and projects, which include training, services, social activities and outings. "This a testiment to their hardwork and dedication," Chief Deputy Maj. Dale Fortney said. "We're proud of our Explorer Unit her at the Sheriff's Office. They've engaged in state and national competitions representing our office extremely well," Fortney said. The program is open to teens ages 14 to 21, who have an interest in Law Enforcement and want to make a difference in their community. "This is something I've always wanted since I first joined. With my dad being a deputy it's something I've always looked forward to and wanted to so. It's an honor," Fraizer said. "It's a great feeling. When I found out after our interviews I was promoted I just wanted to jump and scream," Essick said. "This is a very good program if you want to get into law enforcement. It has helped me make my career choice for the future," Canankamp said. The Explorer Program meets every Monday of every month at the Richland County Sheriff's Office located at 597 Park Ave. East from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information about the program or if you would like to attend a meeting, contact Deputy Gary Keiner at 419-774-3571 or email Deputy Kiener at [email protected]
