Vintage USPF Police & Fire

The California Police Olympics 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, USA, with nearly 5,000 competitors. (excerpt from
During the 1980's-90's, the USPF was very involved with the CA Police Olympics and World Police & Fire Games Powerlifting competitions with numerous USPF records being made/broken.
The Vintage Records and photos are from these meets and era.
