The Santa Clara County Office of the Sheriff, Reserve Division is hosting its 13th Annual Reserve Best In The West Shooting Competition this Saturday, October 21, from 8 am to 4 pm, at the Sheriff’s Office range. The range is located at 9619 Malech Road in San Jose.
The event is closed to the public due to safety and liability concerns, but news media is invited to cover the competition. The competition is based on the 2-day “Best In The West” S.W.A.T. competition hosted by the Sheriff’s office for the full time S.W.A.T. teams from all over the world. This 1 day event is open to all reserve officers. The events are scored by points to determine which reserve team is the "Reserve Best In The West."
While the competition is fierce, the Reserve Best In The West breeds a special camaraderie among the reserve teams and serves as a workshop to share techniques and improve performance.
The annual competition is widely covered by local media and national law enforcement publications. The range will be available for news media to preview on the day of the event.
