An obstacle course was the final competitive event.  This course was designed to add stress to the motor officers with the intent of replicating emergency responses in critical situations.  Time is kept for teams competing in this course.  The City of Bend Police Traffic Team took first place!


The Bend Police Department Traffic Team has competed in past events with great success.  Over the last three training conferences they have finished in the top three.
