The Tactical 10k and 2 mile was created to help the Vero Beach Police Department acquire equipment their normal budget does not support. During the inaugural event our goal was to raise funds to purchase a tactical pole camera system for members of the Critical Response Team who respond to calls that require special weapons and tactics. This equipment has now been put into service when members are called to search a residence for an armed suspect. By deploying this device the team is able to gain an advantage and observe potential threats before entering the dangerous environment.
We are grateful for the support from our community and those who continue to make this event a success!
