2019 Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition (SPMTC)

The Pima County Sheriff's Department is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 23rd Annual Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition SPMTC 2019.  It is scheduled for April 12 and 13, 2019 at Park Place. This dynamic training and friendly competition is open to all currently certified motorcycle officers. The host hotel for this year's event will be the Sheraton Hotel on Grant Road in Tucson. (More information and links to come!)

The Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition is an excellent opportunity to provide motorcycle officers with the most current training techniques. This two day event includes a skills course with a variety of exercises, two man pair riding, four man team riding, as well as a slow ride competition. Each of these exercises is designed to enhance the ability of the modern day Motorcycle Officer.   

This year, the proceeds raised from SPMTC will benefit Kent's Heart & Hope Foundation - supporting First Responders diagnosed with sudden illness such as cancer, heart attack, stroke.  Tucson Police Motor Ofc. Kent Rhind participated in several SPMTC competitions and was with TPD for 27 years.  He would have been honored that his namesake charity was selected to be beneficiary of this outstanding motorcycle competition.

There is a gap for support and services available for First Responders who are killed or injured in the line of duty.  Kent's Heart & Hope aims to fill the gap in an effort to provide a complete circle of support.  Police Officers have a 40% higher likelihood of being diagnosed with cancer, a 50% higher risk of having a heart attack and a 35% higher risk for mental issues such as PTSD.  This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to give back to the community we serve and support our Brothers in Blue when they need it most so they can focus on what's most important - their health. 

​Thank you for supporting SPMTC 2019!
