FALL RIVER — The Fall River Police Department wants to thank Mile High Shooting for the generous donation of an Accuracy International AT Precision Long Rifle and Nightforce Scope. We also want to thank the CT SWAT Challenge for selecting the Fall River Police Department's Emergency Services Unit as the recipient of this donation.

The donation of this precision rifle is valued at $8500 and came at no cost to the City of Fall River.

Mile High Shooting and the Connecticut SWAT Challenge are committed to the training and safety of our nation's law enforcement personnel. Their commitment and generosity are greatly appreciated by the Fall River Police Department. Mile High Shooting Accessories provides quality products and equipment for Long Range shooting of all types.

The Connecticut SWAT Challenge is the nation’s premier tactical training event and competition that attracts Law Enforcement and Military units from across the country. The Challenge consists of eight events over three days, and culminates in a grueling fitness challenge where each team must carry a 45-pound Sandbag, 35-pound SlamBall, and a 25-pound Kettlebell over a five-mile obstacle course. The event is open to all Law Enforcement, Military, Corrections, Federal and State ESU/SRT/SWAT/Special Operations personnel.

The Fall River Police Department finished 13 out of 34 teams.
