LPD Takes Top Honors at 13th Annual Florida SWAT Association Spring Shoot Out

Congratulations to Sergeant Dale Deas who was awarded the TOP SNIPER honor and Officer Preston Hale who came in second place at the annual SWAT competition. The duo also took first place honors in the overall team competition.

The Spring Shoot Out Competition is a weeklong event designed to test the skills of snipers from across the State of Florida. Officers are judged on their accuracy, physical stamina, knowledge of range estimation and scope adjustment, and target recognition. Competitors are required to run six different timed shooting courses and are graded on their speed and accuracy.

CONGRATULATIONS Sergeant Deas and Officer Hale. You make us proud!
