Tactical Conference and SWAT Competition

The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) will be hosting its 18th Annual Tactical Training Conference and S.W.A.T. Competition on Thursday and Friday, October 4- 5, 2018. $100 fee covers the cost of training workshops and dinner on Day 1, Competition and lunch on Day 2. Visit the Agenda page for time and location details.

The challenging, non-stop S.W.A.T. competition that you have come to expect will still be packed into one day – the O’course, Pistol Shoot-off, Hostage Rescue, and Mystery Event will be held on Friday October 5th. Attention has always been given to events that test weapon skills, endurance and decision making – this year no less demanding.  At the conclusion of the competition, there will be a presentation of prizes and awards ceremonies.

This year, HPD has partnered with TSSi to add a customer and vendor appreciation event and open house on Thursday, October 4th. This day is optional, but will offer multiple training sessions, individual shooting competitions with prizes, and allow competitors the chance to walk through the competition course. There will also be a competition kick-off dinner Thursday evening at TSSi.  The training, appreciation event, and dinner on Thursday are all included in the $100 registration fee.

HPD will again offer the mid-day grilling session on Friday, so you eat when you have a break in the action.  T-shirts and other SWAT Competition merchandise will be available for sale on Thursday at TSSi.

HPD looks forward to your participation and support.
