The Lt. James E. Breining Scholarship Award established in 2008 to recognize the active Law Enforcement Explorer who best embodies the character and spirit of Exploring. Character, ethics, and demonstrated leadership in Law Enforcement Exploring and in the community is what drove Jim Breining to remain a steadfast promoter of this program for his entire adult life. To continue Jim’s tireless efforts, the foundation helps pay college education for those Law Enforcement Explorers who possess these ideals and we encourage them to apply for this scholarship.
