Two Bronxville police officers will travel to Arizona for a week of special firearms instruction thanks to an anonymous donation from a resident.

The money was donated after the resident approached Bronxville Police Chief Christopher Satriale to tell him about a positive experience he had had at a firearms training class for hunters, Satriale said. The Board of Trustees accepted the $6,500 gift at its Oct. 1 meeting.

“The resident had such great reviews for the class that he said he wanted to send two of my firearms instructors to a similar class,” said Satriale. “While the resident attended a class for civilians, our instructors will be participating in a class specific for law enforcement.”

The officers will attend the week-long seminar from Oct. 12 through 19 at Gunsite Academy, a training facility in Arizona. They will then be able to teach the rest of the department, which is composed of 22 officers, said Satriale.
