The first Douglas County Fallen Officers Fund golf tournament on Aug. 12 raised more than $41,000, according to a news release.

Hosted by Meridian Golf Club, the tournament drew 120 golfers and had 12 sponsors, including gold sponsor Miller's Landing, along with US Foods and John Elway Chevrolet.

Those in attendance were able to see the Doulgas County Mounted Patrol and SWAT vehicles, as well as a 1962 fire truck displayed at the event by Jason Neeley. Among the items that were auctioned were an African safari and a NASCAR race package.
