Editor's note

Dear PoliceOne members,

As many of you know, 5.11 Tactical and PoliceOne.com have teamed up to create the 5.11 Challenge, a high-energy, real-world test of firearms skills open to select two-person teams of officers from across the nation. 5.11 is beginning the contestant selection process during which a group of candidates will be chosen every week for the next 32 weeks from the pool of registrants.

Register now!

Note: If you registered as a candidate in 2004 or 2005, you do not need to register again. You will be automatically entered in the 2006 candidate pool.
