SC Law Enforcement Officers Association announces statewide public safety and military competition
Monday, October 14, 2013

COLUMBIA, SC - The South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, in partnership with U.S. Patriot, is proud to announce the 2013 SCLEOF First Responders Games. This exciting event will take place Saturday October 26, 2013 at White Knoll High School – the battles for bragging rights will take place in the Stadium beginning at 8:00 AM. With the event primarily a TEAM contest it should be a great day of competition and rivalry between public safety and military athletes from around the State.

Chief Deputy Keith Kirchner (Lexington County Sheriff’s Department) and President of the SCLEOA stated that this event is an exciting way for public safety and military personnel to show off their pride and professionalism on the field of battle during this “Cross-fit” style competition. President Kirchner added that the SCLEOA continues to be the trend setter in providing public safety top of the line training and opportunities to advance the profession and to improve the quality of life in South Carolina.

Paul Paterson, Vice President of Retail Operations for US PATRIOT TACTICAL stated they are proud to support the SCLEOA, public safety and the military in this competition and this invaluable opportunity to improve the physical fitness and training for our first line of defense at home and abroad. Mr. Paterson stated that U.S. Patriot is a Veteran owned company in Columbia, SC and they are happy to provide sponsorship for this event because it helps increase the accountability of public safety and the military for high physical fitness standards and increases the overall proficiency for our responders and military – be prepared to care for the citizens we all serve. Mr. Paterson added that the $10,000 donation U.S. Patriot made to the SCLEOA will be solely used toward the top of the line training that the SCLEOA continues to provide public safety across South Carolina.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association is proud to be THE Voice of Law Enforcement in South Carolina and proud of what our 8,000 members do everyday for our citizens. The SCLEOA will continue to set the standard of service to our members and be THE resource for our members and the communities we serve. The First Responder Games are open to competitors from the military, EMS, Firefighters, Telecommunications officers, correctional officers, and police officers.
