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.
The dates for 2019 will be June 17th through the 29th. Look for event schedule and location of events
