*50% of each team’s roster must be emergency services personnel (Police, Fire and EMT); the other 50% can be non-emergency services.
*Each team should have a Law Enforcement Agency name; however, officers from multiple agencies may create one team with the addition of other emergency services personnel if needed.
*Each team should designate a coach and captain and submit their contact information with their registration forms.
If you are planning on putting a team together, remember the NCLEWA will assist up to three (3) teams on their registration fee. HOWEVER, $400 would be split amongst the teams. In other words: each team would get $133 to put toward their registration fee.
