This biennial event is often referred to as the Olympics for serving and retired police, fire, prison and border security officers and Belfast we’re sure will be the friendliest and most welcoming games. This fantastic event is sure to encourage tourism and help local businesses and people prosper in these fantastic times in Northern Ireland.
