Law enforcement officers from across the Tennessee Valley and beyond are out in the field this week, learning about long-distance sniper training.


The training course is being hosted all week in Limestone County and brings officers out of the classroom and onto the range, giving them experience in hitting a target from up to 1,000 yards away.


A Limestone County deputy is hosting the class free of charge.

Officers from across north and central Alabama, as well as Tennessee and Mississippi, are in attendance at this week’s training.
