  I Ran From the Cops and SWAT Challenge

The city of Centralia welcomes the beginning of summer and the fourth of July with a large celebration called Summer Fest, held on July 4th each year.

Festivities begin in Borst Park with a pancake feed, fishing derby, and games for kids. A parade is held in downtown Centralia during afternoon hours. The celebration ends with a demolition derby and fireworks display at Southwest Washington Fairgrounds.

To kick-off Summer Fest, the Centralia Police Officer's Association holds two events: I Ran from the COPS and the SWAT Challenge. They raise funds for community support such as scholarships and Shop with a Cop programs.

I Ran from the Cops is a flat, fast 8K run. Lead the chase or relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings by participating in the 1.5K health walk-jog (families are encouraged to join).

This event is for everyone. Fee includes a t-shirt for all participants (SWAT Challenge t-shirts are limited, so register early).

There are Special Awards for the heroes!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a SWAT Officer?
Can you measure up to the challenge?
The CPD Officer’s Association is now offering the actual entry level SWAT exam as specified by the WA State Training Commission.
 This test is administered by SWAT team members to the same standard that every SWAT officer must pass on the first day of SWAT school.

The test is administered at the start of the first day. If an officer fails any event, the officer is sent home right then. There are no excuses and no exceptions.
