TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On May 15, the Tucson Sector Honor Guard Drill Team won first place at the 12th Annual Steve Young Honor Guard Competition, in Washington D.C. 

The Honor Guard earned recognition as the best law enforcement drill team in the U.S.  The competition was held during National Police Week in Washington D.C., when Tucson's Honor Guard competed against the top ten law enforcement teams from across the U.S.

National Police Week allows law enforcement organizations to honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who serve on the front lines protecting the safety and security of communities across America.

Tucson Sector Honor Guard Drill Team will add this prestigious award to their recent win against four other Border Patrol teams, which allowed them to represent the Border Patrol at the 12th Annual Steve Young Honor Guard Competition.
