The Australasian Police and Emergency Services (AP&ES) Games, are a biennial event held throughout Australia and New Zealand. The 17th Games will be hosted within the City of Mandurah, Western Australia, between the 28th October and 3rd November 2018.
The Games are open to all serving, retired members and registered volunteers of eligible agencies. Eligible agencies include Police and Law Enforcement Agencies and Emergency Service Agencies. Eligible competitors are either full time or part time employees (sworn and unsworn), registered volunteers or retired personnel from eligible agencies from Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. Competitors must be 18 years or over at the time of the Games.
The Games seek to provide a positive sporting, cultural, social and tourism experience for all competitors and accompanying persons, while fostering positive physical and mental benefits for participants. The Games provide a unique opportunity for the wider community to recognise the contribution made by first responders throughout Australasia.
There are over 50 sports on offer at the 2018 AP&ES Games, so you can safely say there is something for everyone.
