DQPD Chief Richard McKinley said Thursday that all officers of both the city and county qualified Wednesday with handguns and shotguns.
"All of our officers are tip-top in their firearms, each one above and beyond state standards," McKinley
According to McKinley
, the state requires law enforcement to re-qualify in firearms annually, however both De Queen City officers and Sevier County
officers choose to recertify bi-annually.
"We want to make sure we have gone above and beyond what the standards are, as much for our officers as for those we serve," McKinley
"The 4-H Club
let us use their range, and we appreciate that very much," McKinley
