June 24 in California: U.S. Police and Fire Submission Grappling Championships
It is with great pleasure that the Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers of the California Police Athletic Federation welcome you; our friends and colleagues from across the country to the 5th Annual United States Police & Fire Championships.
The first California 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.
What began in 1967 as the “California Police Olympics” has grown into a nation-wide sporting event drawing thousands of athletes representing police, firefighters and officers from corrections, probation, border protection, immigration and customs.
In 2016 we will be celebrating 50 Years of Competition and we anticipate to increase the number of athletes competing in San Diego June 18 – 25, 2016.
