SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

For the fourth year Summerfest 2014 Regional Law Enforcement Competition has taken place at the Chatham County Sheriff's complex.

The event brings together eight different exploring groups representing law enforcement agencies in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

Around 80 youth between ages 15 to 21 who are interested in careers in law enforcement compete to test their skills in various realistic scenarios including DUI traffic stop, bomb threat, suspicious person, warrant service, team maze, and crime scene investigation.

"We really, really appreciate the support of the Sheriff and of the community. The many agencies that have come out to support us from, GSP to the military, I mean we are really, really thankful for all the extra hours the staff has put in. And, just also for all the local agencies that have come out, and again just the hard work that the kids have put forth also," said Corporate Rhonda Bryant, Chatham County Sheriff's Office. 

Other activities offered at the event were a rock wall and pistol range.

This event was sponsored by the Coastal Georgia Council Boy Scouts of America and the Chatham County Sheriff's Explorer Post.
