The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) will be hosting its 16th Annual SWAT Competition on Friday, October 7, 2016 at the Harper-Presgraves Training Facility on Greendale Road in Harrisonburg. The event begins at 7:30am.

The challenging, non-stop action that you have come to expect will be packed into one day - the O'course, Pistol Shoot-off, Hostage Rescue, and Mystery Event will headline the competition as is our tradition. 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 an informal banquet, presentation of prizes and awards, and closing ceremonies.

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

HPD looks forward to your participation and support.
