It depends on how you approach it. If you are casually mentioning you're an explorer and "you know better" kinda thing, then it may fly well. Years ago when I actually worked normal police work, nothing annoyed me more than people from the north east who would hand me their PBA card that their 3rd cousin gave them, a firefighter who wants to be demanding with his ID/badge, or getting a CAC card when I asked for a DL.
