The World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) is a biennial athletic event open to active and retired law enforcement and fire service personnel throughout the world. The WPFG Federation is an arm of the California Police Athletic Federation (CPAF), an American organisation. The California Police Olympics (its main predecessor) were first held in 1967. The concept evolved over the years and led to the creation of the World Police & Fire Games Federation—a non-profit organization, run by the Californian Police Athletics Federation—in 1983. Two years later, in 1985, the first World Police & Fire Games were held in San Jose, California, with nearly 5,000 competitors. (Source)

Held every two years, the Games offer approximately sixty sports (and almost 80 disciplines), including angling, wrestling and pistol shooting. Participation is approximately 10,000 entrants, slightly fewer than the Summer Olympic Games, and exceeding the third position holder, the Commonwealth Games.

The WPFG uses the following logo (the flag is possibly a white horizontal flag with the logo on the middle): http://www.seeklogo.com/images/W/World_Police_and_Fire_Games-logo-E7F716C704-seeklogo.com.gif
