On the night of Friday, Aug. 20, the Carneys Point-Pennsgrove Police Explorers Post visited 30 youth at Corpus Christi Parish in Carneys Point. The officers talked about their work and why they chose their careers, and welcomed youth group members into the Carneys Point-Pennsgrove Police Explorers Post, which encourages youth to keep their community safe, and builds their self-esteem through activities, community events and workshops.
