b2ap3_thumbnail_news-110314-hallock.jpgRoughly 4,000 people live in South Jacksonville, IL, a rural Midwestern town roughly two hours north of St. Louis (or a four hour’s drive southwest of Chicago, take your pick). Of those 4,000 residents, one of the town’s more prominent citizens is Joshua Hallock, a patrolman with the South Jacksonville Police Department.

 

An officer only since 2008, the 38-year-old Hallock has become surprisingly accomplished in PPC, or police pistol competition. In other words, this guy is good with his handgun … and actually, his hands for that matter. After all, Hallock worked as a studio drummer for 15 years prior to joining the force.  

 

As recruit with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, Hallock began experimenting with police pistol shooting, and more specifically PPC.  Hallock recently registered to participate in the PPC competition at next summer’s World Police & Fire Games.

 

“All officers should take an interest in shooting skills,” Hallock says.  “It is my belief that a police officer should be extremely proficient in the use of the pistol and marksmanship as they can be the most important tools used to save an officer’s life.”

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_news-110314-hallock2.jpgSince his arrival on the force, Hallock founded the Central Illinois Police Pistol League in the Jacksonville area and competed in numerous PPC events around the country.  This past September, Hallock competed in the 2014 NRA National Police Shooting Championships in Albuquerque. He earned third place in the 7- and 15-Yard Standing Without Support competition in the Municipal Division, finishing two places better than in 2013.

 

 “I use my time at these PPC matches to gather the knowledge from my more experienced competitors and I deploy that experience in my own local training environments,” he said. 

 

No doubt about it, Joshua Hallock has already made a big impact in a small town.  Next summer, he hopes to replicate those results on the world stage.
