OPD SWAT team on target

Being a sniper is generally not a qualification to be a school resource officer. However, Oxford High School’s Capt. Philip Zampella says it makes him a better policeman.

Zampella and OPD officer Sean Eyler took fourth place in the Mississippi Tactical Officers Association SWAT training in Meridian earlier this month.

Zampella and Eyler were two of six OPD SWAT teams members who attended and participated in the competition. The OPD SWAT team earned fifth place in the competition. (October 26, 2010, Page 1)
