Welcome to the 2019 Georgia Police and Fire Games
The Georgia Police and Fire Games were established to recognize and honor those who work full time in the profession of law enforcement and or fire fighting. These men and women risk it all each tour of duty and work not for the money but for the call to duty and the honor to serve.
These Games are open to active and retired law enforcement officers and firefighters in every state in the US.
To participate in the Games you must be:
1. A full-time, salaried employee of a Federal agency in the field of law enforcement or fire-fighting;
2. A full-time, salaried employee of a State agency in the field of law enforcement or fire-fighting;
3. A full-time, salaried employee of a local municipality or city in the field of law enforcement or fire-fighting;
4. A retiree from any of the above agencies in either the field of law enforcement or fire-fighting having served ten or more years of honorable service.
5. All participants will be required to present current employment IDs or retirement IDs (if available) as proof of eligibility prior to competing.
As of 2017, officers may combine with other agencies to field team sporting events involving five or more players for team play. By submitting application to participate in these games, each officer attests that he or she meets the above stated requirements. Electronic signature or written signature is recognized as an oath per law. Any falsified applications for participation in these games will be considered an attempt to impersonate an Officer under OCGA 16-10-23 and investigated as such.
The Board of Directors for the Georgia Police and Fire Games are pleased to announce the city of
Newnan, Georgia has been chosen to host the games for the years 2019 and 2020.
Newnan is the perfect city to host the games said Board President James Perry. It is central to the
majority of our competitors, easily accessible by interstate and other good roads and has so many
great restaruants and hotels that will make the visitors for the games have an enjoyable experience.
Newnan and Coweta county citizens and businesess support their first responders entusiastically and
we already know the pride and dedication of the first responders of Newnan and Coweta County will
be a key factor in hosting and producing a successful event each year. Their excitement over the games
has already shown as pre planning discussions have gone very well.
Dalton hosted the games in 2018 and had over 500 contestants. We expect due to location and other
positive factors, Newnan will see an increase in these numbers. The games bring a postive economic
impact to the area during the full week of competition. Events range from toughest cop, toughest fire
fighter, softball, 5k road race, shooting competition, golf and more. Spectators are invited to come
watch the events for free so please plan to come support the men and women who serve your city,
county and State each day as they go head to head in friendly competition during the games.
