The United States Police and Fire Championships are held every year in California. This event brings together Fire/Rescue and Law Enforcement agencies from around the United States. 2016 marks the 50th Anniversary of these games.

There are 41 sporting disciplines’ offered from archery to wrestling, track and field to golf. There are a few non-traditional events like surfing and fitness throw down.

Our own Captain Penny Ingles is in San Diego competing in this prestigious event and has already earned some hardware! Penny’s results thus far:

GOLD MEDAL - Javelin Throw

GOLD MEDAL and NEW MEET RECORD - Women's Triple Jump

Silver Medal - Shot Put

Silver Medal - Hammer Throw

Congratulations Penny! This is especially amazing as, until just a few weeks ago, Penny was on crutches not knowing if she was going to be well enough to even compete.
