LINLEA president Cecil B. Griffiths, shortly after presenting the both trophies to the LNP and LSP Kickball teams, said the tournament was part of activities to commemorate LINLEA's 25th Anniversary that began on May 15, 2019.
Griffiths said that the tournament was an annual event aimed at bringing law enforcement agencies together in a spirit of oneness.
The tournament, he noted, provides opportunity for law enforcement agencies to meet and interact with each other.
"LINLEA expects to develop an all stars law enforcement team to be called the "Law Enforcers" to compete in international police games, and local tournaments," Griffiths explained about the benefits of the tournament.
