Hello readers of scouts-l,
I was reading one of the scouts-l digests of last week and saw
an article from Jim Miller Jr. <JMillerJr@AOL.COM>. He writes:
>OK, while we are on this subject I have a question. If a youth

Being a scout(er) from Holland, (and not knowing enough about the
american scouting-program) I wondered:
WHAT is a "Law Enforcement Explorer"?
What are his (or her (when co-ed?)) objectives?
Is it a kind of "neighbourhood watch" done by scouts?
Are there any formal contacts with the "Law" (e.g. the
What does a L.E.E. do when he comes across an(y) illegal thing?
Here in The Netherlands scouting is one of the ways for boys and
girls (co-ed) of enjoying their time off, and can not easily be
compared with the system in the USA.
Yours in Scouting,
