On Behalf of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors and local government, the county would like to honor and recognize

 

The Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club

 

for their continued support of the Albemarle County Police Departmentís firearms training needs.

 

The Albemarle County Police Department depends on the skill and accuracy of its officers in the use of their firearms when confronted with life threatening situations.

 

That skill and accuracy requires significant training and firing range time to allow officers to become proficient in a variety of situations which may involve the use of a firearm.

 

For the past ten years, officers of the Albemarle County Police Department have been granted use of the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club in a partnership arrangement that has benefited the Department greatly.

 

Without the availability of the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club, the Department would have had to locate or construct adequate facilities for their firearms training, which would have incurred significant costs and created inconvenience for officers attempting to meet their training and certification needs..

 

It is with great appreciation that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, on behalf of our entire community, commends the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club for their generosity and community spirit in sharing their firing range with County Police Officers.  The support and civic mindedness of organizations like the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club truly make our county a better and safer place for all residents.
