"Top Sniper" Award in Pasadena Police SWAT Competition

The Pasadena Police Department held their inaugural SWAT Competition at the Burro Canyon Shooting Range on October 25, 2011.  Ten SWAT teams competed in the event which raised $5,000 for the South Pasadena Police Department Officer Kevin Sandoval Scholarship Fund.  Officer Sandoval, who suffered from an unrelated medical condition, collapsed and died while training at Burro Canyon with his agency earlier this year, in June.  Participants, family, friends, and members of the South Pasadena Police Department gathered for a ceremony honoring Officer Sandoval before the competition.

Team members competed in a variety of tactical courses, including shoot courses with movement and physical activity, a rescue drill, sniper courses, and other drills associated with a tactical mission.  Our APD sniper team took home the award for "Top Sniper".  The SWAT team from Long Beach Police Department took overall honors in the competition.
