About the World Police and Fire Games

The World Police and Fire Games are a kind of Olympic Games for the members of the police (federal and state police), law enforcement, customs and professional fire brigades, which take place every two years.

History

The national California Games were founded in 1967 by Duke Nyhus, deputy head of the San Diego Police Department. Due to their enormous popularity, the number of participants grew. Already in 1985 the first World Police & Fire Games were held in San José. The aim of the World Sports Games was to bring together the members of the various professional groups, to compete in sporting competitions, to increase the performance of the members of the task forces and to create friendly links between each other, to promote understanding for each other’s work and to set an example.

The World Police & Fire Games are now one of the three largest sporting events of their kind in the world: In 1997, 8,700 athletes from 45 nations came to Calgary, Canada, and over 9,000 people volunteered to help. In 2003 in Barcelona, more than 10,500 athletes from 64 nations competed for the coveted medals in 65 different sports.

The Games

The world sports games of the police and fire brigade will cover 79 different sports for the first time in 2007, instead of the usual 65 disciplines. Many new competitions have been introduced by the Australian hosts to make these spectacles even more attractive. Among the sports on offer are traditional Olympic disciplines such as athletics, swimming, martial arts and various team sports, as well as professional competitions such as Police Dog Testing, MP Shooting, Police Action Pistol (special police-related shooting) or Muster (a firefighting test for firefighters). Further disciplines such as bowling, darts, dragon boat races or billiards are also on the programme to enable pensioners to participate. A special feature is the special competition Toughest Competitor Alive: 5 km race, shot put, 100 m sprint, 100 m swimming, rope climbing (6.1 m), bench press, pull-ups (upper handle), obstacle course.

As with the great example of the Olympic Games, the World Police and Fire Games also begin with a grand opening ceremony. Professional competitions, an average level of performance of the participating athletes and friendly and fair dealings with each other characterize this sporting event.
