First 'Tactical Leadership Challenge" held by Statesboro PD next Saturday

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

If you’re looking for a challenge beyond the normal 5-K or golf tournament, Statesboro Police might have something for you next Saturday.

They're holding their first Tactical Leadership Challenge. Teams can sign up to compete on this obstacle course. Teams can be from businesses, civic groups, or just friends.

You'll run through the same course that local officers use for training. The contest raises money for the local SWAT team to go to competition and help the Boys and Girls Club.

But there's another purpose too.

“We hope it will also be a good interaction between the officers and the community. They get the chance to see what these officers face from time to time,” said Maj. Rob Bryan, Statesboro PD.
