There are several SWAT Challenges around the country; they are a great venue for comradery and information exchange. It’s great to see company’s like IWI invest in the events, and we thank them for their participation. These officers are a talented and dedicated group of people.
Harrisburg, Pa. (July 2014) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is proud to announce a corporate sponsor partnership with Indiana SWAT Challenge, Inc. (ISC), a non-profit corporation based in Muncie, Indiana. Now, in its 13th year, the Indiana SWAT Challenge offers SWAT teams from across the country an opportunity to test and train in a unique military-style setting. Teams compete while sharpening their skills in real-world type scenarios. This year the Indiana SWAT Challenge, hosted by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, will be held at Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana.
“The Indiana SWAT Challenge provides SWAT officers an ideal opportunity to experience the benefits of the TAVOR® SAR, especially its compact size, perfect for entry, enclosed interior spaces and for getting in and out of patrol cars,” Michael Kassnar, VP of Sales and Marketing for IWI US, commented. “We are proud to partner with an organization that provides officers with serious training and testing in an atmosphere of camaraderie and community support.”
“The partnership between ISC & IWI is an ideal match,” Tony Skinner, ISC President, added. “The SWAT Challenge brings over one hundred highly motivated SWAT officers to Indiana for the competition every year. This year they will be rewarded with the prospect of shooting the world’s most advanced rifle-the TAVOR® SAR. We are excited about providing this through our sponsor, IWI US, and introducing IWI US to the best tactical officers around. ISC’s expectations are for a long and successful partnership.”
The Indiana SWAT Challenge takes place September 3rd-6th, 2014. Members of the Delaware County Emergency Response Team staff the Challenge and do not participate.
