The Apache Junction Police Department is proud to announce that the police firing range has added concrete lanes to aid police personnel in properly qualifying with their duty firearms, which is a Departmental requirement in addition to Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training requirement (AZPOST).
This project was completed at no cost to the Apache Junction Police Department or the City based on the generous donation of the concrete by Cemex concrete company. Approximately $3,000 in high strength concrete was donated. Labor costs would bring the total donation to more than $6,000.
During the week of December 3rd through the 7th the below listed personnel were involved in the construction project:
Sgt. Paul Newman
Sgt. Pat Wagner
Det. Chad Southwick
Officer Wes Kelley
Sgt. Cody Mulineaux
Officer Brian Dillon
Pinal County Adult Probation
David Shultz-V.P G.M Phoenix Redi Mix
Mike Ragsdale-Operations Manager Phoenix Redi Mix
Patty McGillicuddy-Inside Sales Phoenix Redi Mix
Eric Bleything-Quality Control Tech Phoenix Redi Mix
The donation will benefit other law enforcement agencies as well, as the AJPD range is open to several Metro Valley agencies by appointment. Those agencies include Arizona DPS, Gilbert PD, Chandler PD, Tempe SWAT, Arizona Department of Transportation (A.D.O.T.), Pinal County Probation, US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Scottsdale SWAT.
