Deputy Andrew Mulgrew and Deputy Michael Maze have a passion for two things, competition pistol shooting and supporting wounded veterans. The two deputies were able to combine these passions at the recent Top Cop shooting contest.
The Top Cop Pistol Competition helps raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The fundraiser is a singles and two-person team marksmanship contest for law enforcement personnel.
Mulgrew and Maze placed 5th in team scoring and Mulgrew scored high enough to also tie for third place. This annual event is hosted by hosted by Jackson Rancheria Casino.
The Wounded Warrior Project was founded in Roanoke, Va. by a group of veterans and friends who took action to help the injured service men and women of this generation. The project provides programs and services to severely injured military service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.
The Top Cop Challenge raised nearly $20,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
“I’m very proud of our deputy sheriffs,” said Sheriff Adam Christianson. “They’ve represented the sheriff’s office with pride and honor by supporting our veterans.”
