The "Original California Police Olympics" --
The first Police Olympics were held in San Diego, California in 1967, and were founded by San Diego Police Lieutenant Veon "Duke" Nyhus who recognized the need to promote physical fitness and camaraderie among members of the law enforcement community. Duke formulated the idea of the Police Olympics and created the competition with an eye towards promoting physical fitness and sports as a means for officers to improve their overall fitness, reduce stress, and increase their professional abilities.
United States Police & Fire Championships are scheduled for June 22-29, 2019 in San Diego County. This Olympic-type event is open to individuals representing law enforcement, fire, prisons and border protection. 3,000 competitors are expected to compete in more than 55 sporting events at 35 venues.
