23rd Annual Southwest Police Motorcycle Training Competition

 

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 23rd Annual Southwest Police Motorcycle Training Competition (SPMTC).  This highly anticipated, annual event is scheduled for April 12 & 13, 2019 at Park Place, 5870 E. Broadway Blvd, from approximately 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  The public is invited to view this dynamic display of police motorcycle skills free of charge. 


History

SPMTC was started in 1997 by the Tucson Police Department with the initial intent of bringing motorcycle police officers of various agencies together in an exchange of training techniques through   a friendly skills competition. 

To reduce the work load on any one agency, the organization of the SPMTC event began to rotate between the participating agencies.  The Tucson Police Department, Phoenix Police Department and Las Vegas Metro Police Department accepted this challenge. In 2016, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department was honored to be accepted for this same challenge.  Over the years SPMTC has enjoyed great success in its ability to raise money for beneficiaries, while providing an entertaining venue for the public.

The proceeds raised from this years Southwest Police Motorcycle Training Competition will benefit Kent's Heart & Hope Foundation. This organization supports First Responders diagnosed with sudden illness such as cancer, heart attack, stroke.  

Kent's Heart & Hope aims to fill the gap in service provided to First Respnders in an effort to provide a complete circle of support. Police Officers have a 40% higher likelihood of being diagnosed with cancer, a 50% higher risk of having a heart attack and a 35% higher risk for mental issues such as PTSD. This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to give back to the community we serve and support our Brothers in Blue when they need it most so they can focus on what's most important - their health.
