This year's Police and Emergency Services Games (External link) return under its usual schedule and format with more than 40 sports being offered over 18 to 27 March across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The benefits of an active lifestyle and the positive impact it can have on physical and mental health and wellbeing are well understood.

Finding time for sport or exercise is a challenge for many, and it's particularly important for those working in the emergency management sector.

The Victoria Police and Emergency Services Games are about more than competition – they are an opportunity for to come together, prioritise physical and mental health, and invest in the friendships that characterise the spirit of the Games.

The Games are significant because of the diverse range of competitors coming together from our participating agencies.

The Games are for members, employees and/or volunteers of affiliated agencies. While not open for the general public, everyone and anyone is welcome to support participants and be part of the fun.
