By: WDAY Staff Reports, WDAY

This shooting competition is a fun activity associated with the week. Officers from across the state test their skills in a shotgun, semi-automatic and sniper competition.

People working the event say the sniper shoot is a fan favorite.

“We have guys that probably could hit a quarter from 200 yards consistently.”

Around 60 to 70 shooters will take part in the event running through tomorrow.
