Tactical Police Competition held in the Rogue Valley

Eagle Point, Ore. — Local law enforcement were out at the Jackson County Shooting Range brushing up on their active shooting skills with help from the National Rifle Association.

The annual shooting competition hosted by the NRA invited police, military and the public to take part in real-life scenarios that test the shooter’s accuracy, speed and knowledge under pressure – skills that can mean life or death on the job.

Competition Organizer Deputy Phil Cicero said, “They can think on their feet as they’re moving through situations because it’s pretty dynamic, and you can’t call the bullet back so you make sure you know what you’re shooting at.”

The skills competition continues this weekend with the fastest, most accurate shooters winning prizes.
