SWAT Training For Benefit

Posted: Updated:

The Minot SWAT team was called out this morning, not for an emergency but for some competitive tactical training and competition.

All of it is leading up to a benefit for one of their longtime leaders.

Shaun Sipma was at the range this morning with the SWAT team and has more.

(Justin Dump, Minot SWAT Team) "It's something that we can do, something small in our own way. That we support you. Give him an opportunity to watch later and take his mind off of everything else."

As a member of a SWAT team each person plays and important role.

Each trusting in the other, their abilities and their commitment.

When one of their brethren falls on hard times their creed binds them together even stronger than before.

For one of their own, former Minot SWAT Commander Lieutenant Darin Egge, the team was together today for that very reason.

 

(Justin Dump, Minot SWAT Team) "When he had to medically retire from SWAT, I know that was a difficult decision for him.

As a build for Darin's benefit tonight the Minot and Bismarck SWAT teams came together for a little friendly competition.

(Justin Dump, Minot SWAT Team) "We're there for one another and we have each others back and a lot of tactics that we do they have to trust that someone has their back."

The show of support, the friendly competition between the Minot and Bismarck Tactical units is all a build-up for the benefit tonight for 19 year veteran Lieutenant Egge showing that once a member of the unit always a member.

The benefit for Lieutenant Darin Egge is going on right now at the Sleep Inn in Minot.

Donations are also being taken at Gate City Bank in Minot under "Peeps 4 Darin."
