ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif. — Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern issued a challenge to his deputies — a challenge of speed, fitness, endurance, skills and more.
It was the first-ever Sheriff's Challenge. Thirty-three deputies participated, split between Saturday and Sunday, on the course at the Regional Training Center near Santa Rita county jail in Dublin.
"It's important for law enforcement people to remain physically fit and practice skills," Ahern said. "It gives the fittest deputies an opportunity to show their talents and compete against one another."
