April 11, 2017
ICMA-RC, a Washington, D.C.-based retirement plan service provider exclusively serving local and state government employees, is pleased to announce that it is the World Police & Fire Games' "Official Retirement Plan Services Provider" for 2017. The biennial World Police & Fire Games, an Olympic-style sporting event for active and retired law enforcement and fire service personnel throughout the world will be held this year in Los Angeles, CA from August 7 - 16th. ICMA-RC also sponsored the Games in 2015 when they were held in Fairfax, VA.
Open to police officers, firefighters, and customs and correction officers from around the world, the Games provide an opportunity for public safety personnel to showcase their athletic excellence, to share knowledge and to build relationships between organizations.
"We are honored to continue ICMA-RC's support for the World Police & Fire Games," said ICMA-RC President and CEO, Bob Schultze. "The Games are a rewarding way for public safety personnel from around the world, including those we serve in U.S. retirement plans, to meet and compete. We are happy to support their experience."
In conjunction with the sponsorship, ICMA-RC will have its RealizeRetirement® Tour on location at the Games' Athletes Village. The interactive RealizeRetirement® Tour experience is designed to increase public sector employee interest in saving for retirement through sophisticated technology combined with personal interaction. The Tour's "technology and talk" approach appeals to all generations of employees from those just beginning their careers to those nearing or in retirement.
"The World Police & Fire Games would not be possible without the support of organizations like ICMA-RC," said Michael Graham, President of the World Police & Fire Games. "We truly appreciate their continued support of the men and women who proudly serve in public safety in our communities."
The 2017 World Police & Fire Games will take place in Los Angeles and the surrounding area including Hermosa Beach and at iconic venues including the Los Angeles Coliseum, the LA Convention Center, and Exposition Park.
