Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - County Supervisor Dave Roberts has been named honorary chairman of the 2015 U.S. Police and Fire Olympics, which will be held right here in San Diego.

The 49th annual event will take place May 30 through June 6 at venues throughout the county. Athletes from police, fire, prison and border protection agencies from all 50 states will compete.

Roberts says the games boost our local economy and are important for the physical well-being of the athletes.

"I think this is a great thing. I hope people will come and watch the games. It's a great spectating opportunity for people to come and see them and just a great way to bring our public safety from around the U.S. together," Roberts said.
